According to an ISCA report, the 8th International Conference on Sustainable Agricultural for Food, Energy, Industry & Environment in Regional and Global Context has been held in Science and Research Islamic Azad University from November 21-23, 2017.

The IAU president, Dr. Farhad Rahbar welcomed national and international guests and declared that despite creating hopes in the heart of humanity, development has left nothing but environmental degradation and destruction of ecosystems.

Dr. Rahbar noted that ‘Sustainable Development’ provides today's generation requirement without threatening opportunities and future generations’ needs.

“If we only think of nature, we are ecocentrism, if we only think of growth, we follow the growth-centered approach, and if we pay no attention to both, we will be faced to poverty expansion,” he added.

The IAU president also explained that ‘Sustainable Development’ could have four aspects including: sustainability in natural resources, political sustainability and social, cultural and economic sustainability which form the main pillars of sustainable development.

“Institutions, governmental as well as international organizations and NGOs are sustainable development’s agents and components,” he said and continued that humans in the past, might have realized that the secret of their survival depended to their harmony with nature but, “availability of new technologies is a reason which makes us forget that instinct and face to the dried Lake Urmia.”

Dr. Rahbar emphasized that research and education will help sustainable development through training creative human resources.
