Agenda: Discussion of CAFU-CoS partnership   for the implementation  of   Ghaf Tree Planting Project    

 

 

The Meeting was organized by the Office of  the Vice Chancellor for community Affairs.

 

11:am. Meeting start

 

1.     Prof Nouar Tabet,   Dean of the college of Sciences started by  welcoming all attendees and invited Mrs Nabra to introduce  the project and its goals.

 

2.     Mrs Nabra Al Busaidi, Manager of the Project  gave a brief presentation about the project and its  main long term  goal which is leveraging drone technology to plant  1 million Ghaf trees in UAE. The   project has a huge  potential impact  on the environment .  Mrs Nabra  explained the technical gap that CAFU would like to fill via partnership with the college of Sciences in the University of Sharjah.

 

3.     Some of the major technical challenges that need to be addressed  were identified.  The success  of the project requires  a good understanding of the  optimum conditions  for the growth of the tree such as  soil properties, environment  conditions,…    and a close  monitoring throughout the year.  Both require a good expertise in  the field of Ecology  and Remote sensing that Prof El Seddig, Prof Ali EL Kablawi  and Dr Hamdan can provide.      

 

4.      Mrs Nabra  confirmed  her satisfaction with the outcome of the discussion and will report to CAFU  management before moving forward.

 

5.     Another meeting will be scheduled soon  to discuss the details of a Memorandum of understanding between CAFU and the College of Science of the university of Sharjah.
