Speech by Chair of the Congress, Eng. Farhad Alizadeh Afshar 

Using the opinions and specialty of university and industrial elite society for planning to reinforce industry cycle and products in different areas of agricultural sciences, natural resources, environment and tourism and using new findings for localizing and using new technologies in the world is an important need. It a long time that sustainable development is the axis of all related scientific societies. Global gathering in Rio De Janeiro in 1992 causes turning point in the history of thought and view toward development and that is due to misconduct and bad teachings resulted from it by generations who desires to access to quick development and economic benefits while they do not consider the points they lose. Sustainable development was first raised officially in 1986 by global environment committee and it was shaped as follow in mid 1990’s: economic growth and social development is done such that environmental capitals and development requirements for next generation will not be impaired. Sustainable development means managing and protecting natural resources, agriculture and environment and part of administrative structure and revolution in optimal use of tourism such that continuous supply of the human requirements and satisfaction of current generation and next generations are guaranteed. Such sustainable development (on agriculture, natural resources, environment and tourism) is accompanied with protecting land, water, general plant & animal reservoirs, it is not accompanied with environmental destruction and uses proper technology. Economically, it is sustainable and it is acceptable socially. In this regard and considering international aspects, the sustainable development of Iran regarding its special geographical location is at a stage of development such that the sustainable development should be considered under any condition.
