Naima Ansar Khan

Research Officer

Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS)


Topics to be discussed
Topics to be Discussed Asia

  • Rationale of this topic

  • Problems and challenges of quality research in South Asia

  • Support to young scientists from IFS

  • BCAS and IFS collaborative actions for quality research:

    A successful Case study

  • Weakness and opportunities of quality research


Problems and challenges of quality research in south asia
Problems and challenges of quality research in South Asia Asia

  • A big community of scientists in South Asia

  • However there exist a lacking in scientific contribution from young generation

  • Lack of resources, guidance and initiative


Supports to young scientists from ifs
Supports to young scientists Asiafrom IFS

  • IFS circulate their call for proposals twice a year

  • Scientific body scrutinize proposals and provide awards

  • Capacity building supports from IFS

  • Providing funds for scientific research

  • Providing training to acquire scientific grants and follow up activities like manuscript preparation etc


Bcas and ifs collaborative actions for quality research
BCAS and IFS collaborative actions for quality research Asia

BCAS in association with IFS organized both national and international hands on training on:

Development ofScientific Methodology

Development of Grant Applications for scientific research

Development of Scientific Manuscripts for Publication

Title:

Analysis of geo-morphological structure at lower Bakkhali river, Cox's Bazar as a means to evolve at suitable option for sustainable water management (SWM)

Application of GIS and RS techniques including Crop-Wat, DSSAT and HEC-RAS model

Objectives:

• To investigate the geo-morphological changes of lower Bakkhali river following the establishment of rubber dam

• To develop a sustainable water utilization matrix considering potential water requirement for agricultural irrigation utilizing multi-criteria analysis.


Example of one successful case
Example of one successful case Asia

Data needs

For detecting changes:

Satellite images

Hydrological parameters

For developing sustainable water utilizing matrix:

Land-use change data

Both weather and climatic data

Soil parameters

Crop parameters

Crop calendar etc

over the period of 12 years


Example of one successful case1

Situation in 1996 Asia

Situation in 2003

Change detection in the Downstream of

Bakkhali river over the period of 12 years

Situation in 2008

Example of one successful case

A few results

Weakness and opportunities
Weakness and opportunities Asia

Weakness:

  • Continuity of IFS program

  • Institutional coverage

    Opportunities:

  • Potential researchers who can be trained

  • Potential institutions

  • Issues to be addressed
