Message from President
I greatly appreciate and sincerely thank all the Fellows of the Pakistan Academy of Sciences for supporting us in the elections of the Council for the 2015–2017 term. The confidence and trust posed in us is a challenge and demands all possible efforts to work for the Academy. I am personally a strong believer in the concept of team work and, thus, request all the Fellows of the Academy to get involved and give suggestions for the way the Academy should function in future.
We fully realize that all efforts should be made to efficiently implement the stated mandate of Academy. The Academy must serve as a viable think tank to provide the policy makers with scholarly documents suggesting science-driven solutions to critical problems
of national significance, like water scarcity, food security, and environmental pollution. We need to guide the government so that Pakistan under goes from a low value agricultural economy to a knowledge economy.
We shall place special emphasis on the International Collaborations as reflected in several MoUs signed by our Academy.
The Academy’s Newsletter and Website are the most effective and powerful means of communication; therefore, we ask you to continually access these sources and give your constructive suggestions.
I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and Productive New Year.
