The International Conference (IFMCC 2023)
The US-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Water (USPCAS-W), Mehran University of Engineering & Technology (MUET), Jamshoro, Pakistan, is a well-recognized Water Center ( water.muet.edu.pk ) at the national and international level for its contributions and engagement in addressing water-related challenges. The USPCAS-W is thus well positioned to serve as a Venue to organize this international conference in collaboration with the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China ( english.egi.cas.cn ). The national partners include i.e., HEC Pakistan ( www.hec.gov.pk ) the Center of Excellence in Water Resources Engineering ( cewre.edu.pk ), the University of Engineering & Technology ( www.uet.edu.pk ) Lahore, University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF), Faisalabad ( uaf.edu.pk ) and Sindh Agriculture University (SAU), Tandojam ( sau.edu.pk and other line departments.
The USPCAS-W will encourage and coordinate participation from countries all around the world for a broad-based discussion and development of strategic mitigation and adaptation strategies to climate change challenges, especially flooding, within the framework of Sustainable Development Goals adopted by all the United Nations Member States, including Pakistan, in 2015. Flooding represents a major barrier to alleviating poverty in many parts of the developing world, where vulnerable communities are often exposed to sudden and life-threatening events.
This conference will provide a forum for researchers, academics, and practitioners actively involved in improving our understanding of flood events and our approaches to response, recovery, rehabilitation, and resilience.
