LAHORE: University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) Vice-Chancellor Dr Talat Naseer Pasha has urged greater awareness about the importance of water conservation.
“We should make joint efforts, use social media and other means of communication to spread awareness about water conservation,” the VC told a seminar organised by the Department of Environmental Sciences of UVAS.
The event was held to mark World Water Day. The UVAS observed the day by arranging a walk and a seminar with the theme of “Leaving no one behind”.
Dr Pasha said it was very unfortunate that people waste a lot of water in their daily lives due to the lack of awareness.
He stressed on the need to use the latest techniques like drip irrigation system and precision farming.
