Developing Manifesto for Democracy and Sustainable Development
Pir Mehr Ali Shah Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi (PMAS-AAUR) invited Dr. Shahid Zia, Managing Director, Lok Sanjh Foundation, as a key note speaker in a 'Dialogue for Development (DfD) seminar entitled" Developing Manifesto for Democracy and Sustainable Development " on 5th November 2012. A large number of students, researchers and faculty members of the university participated in the seminar.
While speaking on the subject Dr. Shahid Zia said that " people believe that manifesto for democracy is developed by political parties in Pakistan and normally democracy and sustainable development are discussed in separate frameworks. The current system of democracy is based on poor levels of participation and engagement of peopole. It depends with short termisim in which politicians try to develop and deliver with their own agenda to win the next election. As a result various other aspects of the economy and society are neglected and marginalized people become more poor and rich more richer. Hence they are poorly prepared for other challenges like climate change, resource scarcity, good governance, an aging and growing population etc. A well structured democratic system based of full participation of people is essential for dealing with such challenges in Pakistan.
