Back To PostsLEAD Summer School: The Participants’ Perspective

It is a common observation that no event is successful without the positive response of its target audience. The organizers at LEAD kept this aspect in mind while putting together the program schedule for the summer school on “Managing Shared River Basins”. The content was designed to be a mixture of policy and scientific knowledge while keeping ample space for constructive knowledge sharing. LEAD’s main agenda was to provide a platform where water management issues would be discussed in light of the current water crisis in Pakistan.

The success of this strategy was evident in the collective feedback received from participants of the summer school. According to Shabila Perveen from NUST Islamabad, the sessions allowed her and her fellow attendees to develop a cohesive view on the science and policy of Integrated Water Resource Management. She felt that the participants were now better able to analyze water related issues from a broader perspective. 

Another attendee, Mehran Sattar from the US Pakistan Center of Advanced Studies in Water was of the view that the sessions gave a clear picture of climate change dynamics and water management issues in Pakistan. He also expressed satisfaction with the networking opportunities provided by the summer school.
