Amidst the exponential growth in world population, the living standards have been raised profoundly owing to the unprecedented developments in Science and Technology. However, the humankind yet has to face great many challenges in furthering the growth and to sustain it by employing Science and Technology to search for cost effective, environment friendly and recyclable sources of supplies like materials, energy, food and water for the ever-growing population. As the global population is anticipated to exceed ten billion in the forthcoming couple of decades, the rule of Science, particularly the rule of Chemical Sciences is critical to ensure value added products for sustainable development of the society in harmony with the environment. In this context, the Department of Chemistry (Islamia College Peshawar, Pakistan) is organizing a national conference on the theme “Chemistry for Growth and Sustainability” to discuss the challenges that Chemical Scientists will face in averting the multiple crises in materials, climate, energy, food and water sectors while ensuring sustainable growth for high living standards of the humankind.

The basic aim of the conference is to create an opportunity for the national researchers in academia and industry to interact and discuss the challenges and opportunities in Chemical Sciences on one hand, and on the other hand, to upgrade their knowledge and establish long term collaborations for technology transfer which is particularly important for the Pakistani researchers. The conference include plenary lectures by the leading experts in the field, invited talks of nationally acclaimed Chemical Scientists and contributed paper-presentations by the researchers from different fields of Chemical Sciences.
