Biorisk Management (BRM)

Biorisk Management (BRM)

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan is rich in natural resources, including livesock and poultry holdings valuing about 1.00 trillion rupees. However, these resources could neither produce hygienic and Halal food for local consumers and export, nor self-employment for the youth. The main reasons leading to this state of affairs have been failure of the state and private sector organizations to support the sector on commercial  basis, and the poor practices in the field. Dairy Science Park has succesfully demonstrated interventions through post-graduate research and quality control, saving the emerging entrepreneurs from hostile forces.

A collaboration on “Biorisk Management” is in process with the Sandia National Laboratories USA. A four-members delegation of the Park visited the Netherlands in March 2015 for launching the initiative and a 9-members delegation of DSP and a 4-members delegation of Sandia National Laboratories USA met in Dubai to hold the Pakistan Biorisk Management Curriculum Workshop for Universities in Pakistan and the region.  Two more workshops were held in Bangkok and Phuket, Thailand and another one is scheduled for Colombo, Sri Lanka.

A collaboration was initiated with Khyber Medical University, Peshawar under an MoU, signed by all concerned under the supervision of Prof Mukhtar Ahmad, Chairman Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. The MoU intends to develop quality control standards for introduction into local livestock production, processing, marketing and services network, and for protecting public health. Two other MoUs were signed with Women University Mardan, and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, Sheringal on Biorisk Management and Entrepreneurship.
