Professor Kanat Maratovich Tireuov, the Rector and Board Chairman of the Kazakh Agrotechnical Research University (KATRU), has said that Climate change is one of the most urgent challenges humanity faces. Problems of water scarcity and global warming are in the main attention of the whole world. He was speaking at a unique and innovative event at KATRU during which 21 student researchers presented the findings and conclusions of their one-month-long research work done under a project: "Kazakhstan Student Dialogue: Nurturing SDG Solutions".
The Event was jointly organized by KATRU, the UNDP, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the British Embassy in Kazakhstan.
Three teams of KATRU student researchers worked on different research projects related to the environment and climate change.
Professor Tireuov congratulated the University students for successfully completing such a wonderful project and sharing so much useful information through their research work.
“Water scientists warn that there will be a shortage of drinking water in Kazakhstan by 2025. We should solve this monumental problem together as a state, scientists, and organizations,” remarked Professor Tireuov.
British Ambassador to Kazakhstan, Kathy Leach, the Ambassador of Portugal to Kazakhstan Maria de Fatima Mendes and representatives of the UNDP, the FAO, the Ministry of Ecology and SDSN Kazakhstan also spoke on the occasion.
