In November 2021, the Research Directorate, Office of Sustainability, established a NUST Climate Change Advisory Board. The Board included thought leaders and researchers in SDG 13: Climate Action, based on their current and previous contributions to the field.
The Board’s first task is to develop a NUST Climate Action Plan (NCAP). A draft of the NCAP has now been formulated, and the Plan will be officially launched in February 2023. The Plan includes a comprehensive timeline to direct Climate Action within NUST and align it with national work on Climate Action.
Board members currently include:
SDG 1: 648 low-income students receiving financial aid
SDG 4: 3,929 graduates who gained a qualification that entitled them to teach at primary school level
SDG 5: 554 women starting a first degree (first-generation students)
SDG 6: 75% of water is treated
SDG 7: 100% renewable by 2030
SDG 11: 91,000,000 expenditure on arts and heritage
SDG 12: 92% waste recycled
SDG 13: Net Zero by 2030
