The Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) and Naif Arab University for Security Sciences (NAUSS) held on October 26, in Rabat, Morocco, a consultative meeting to finalize their future partnership agreement. The two entities will collaborate on the implementation of ICESCO’s new program for 2021-2023 on natural disaster risk reduction in Muslim countries.
The partnership is part of ICESCO’s sustained efforts to support Member States to counter crises following the great success of the 2018-2020 pilot program and the sustained cooperation between ICESCO and NAUSS, in Saudi Arabia.
Dr. Raheel Qamar, Director of the Science and Technology Sector at ICESCO, and Dr. Khalid Abdulaziz Al Harfash, Director of Public Relations at NAUSS, chaired the meeting. The event brought together several directors and officials of ICESCO’s sectors as well as NAUSS delegation.
After his welcome address, Dr. Qamar reviewed the major programs and achievements of the Science and Technology Sector. Dr. Al Harfash then made a presentation on NAUSS’s new strategy and its scientific programs and activities as well as its aspiration for the partnership with ICESCO.
The meeting also touched upon the programs, activities, and studies of common interest to be conducted as part of the cooperation agreement, including four action areas: academic programs (MA and diploma), training sessions, scientific research, and forums, conferences, and related activities.
The two parties agreed to come up with a draft project proposal to establish “ICESCO Center for Natural Disaster and Crises Risk Reduction in the Islamic World” at NAUSS, to be submitted to ICESCO’s Executive Council and NAUSS’s Supreme Council.
