“Dairy Science Park Board would be established at Peshawar with expert members from the public and private sectors. For this purpose a summary would be submitted to the Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It would lead to enhanced production of quality meat generating decent employment for the youth. A modern slaughter house would be established with a cost of Rs.200 millions. Peshawar Development Authority and Dairy Science Park would collaborate in establishing this facility so that quality meat is provided to the people.”
Senior Minister Local Government GoKP
Dairy Science Park has gone through a struggle for policy reforms spread over a decade (UAP 2016, DSP 2019). DSP has come up with the idea of the Triple Helix Model of Academia-Industry-Government Nexus of Good Governance. The Livestock Technopark Peshawar (LTP) has been proposed under FAO KP Livestock Action Plan 2019 as an autonomous body with regulatory, administrative and financial powers.
Policy reforms have been suggested under the Dairy Science Park on the basis of its struggle spread over a period of a decade comprising the biennial international conference series, US-SNL sponsored Biorisk Management activities, entrepreneurship development and quality control certification.
Under the proposed Livestock Technopark (LTP), at the end of the year 2021, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be able to generate direct decent employments to the tune of 18000, each one earning about Rs.50,000 per month and employing five more persons each. Hygienic, Halal and Organic food would be produced per annum, as: 657.0 million kg milk, 19.2 m kg beef, 32.9 m kg mutton, 45.0 m kg poultry meat and 3.2 m kg fish meat, valuing Rs. 5098 billion. A fraction of 10% may be injected into Halal Meat Export Market.
Motivated young graduates in veterinary, engineering, medical, business and social sciences would be joining LTP for their career development and transformation of ideas into actions to serve the society. Quality conscious consumers would be having access to traceable food products in the towns. Public and private sector organizations would be having sufficient operational funds for motivating their staff and serving the people.
And this is the Beacon of Hope committed by the author under policy reforms of the Dairy Science Park.
