About

Centre for Coastal and Deltiac Studies (CCDS) was established on 8th December 2015 at Sindh University Thatta Campus located at Makli. Sindh, Pakistan. It is an interdisciplinary education and research center for providing trained human resource and research based solutions related to coastal and deltaic region of Pakistan. The purpose of the centre is to strive for the improvement, management and socio-economic development of coastal community, fisheries sector, mangrove vegetations, reduction of rapidly changing ecosystem by seawater intrusion and climate change. Pakistan is having coastal line of about 990 km in Baluchistan and Sindh provinces touching to Arabian Sea. The Sindh coast line is of approximately 350 kilometers extends from the Hub river delta in the north-west to the Runn of Kutch along the Indian border covering Karachi and six talukas (sub-districts) of district Thatta such as Keti Bandar,  Shah Bandar,  Ghorabari, Jati,  Mirpur Sakro and Thatta taluka besides the Sujawal and Badin districts. The Indus river delta is the 7th largest delta in the world. It is a productive zone known to be a natural hatchery for a number of marine fauna and floura of Arabian Sea. Due to decrease in water and silt and rising sea levels due to climate change the Indus Delta along with its living resources is under Threat. The CCDS conducts research of applied and basic nature with collaboration of government departments/ ministries/ agencies, NGOs and National and International Organizations.  The CCDS also plans to offer a number of training courses and postgraduate degree courses such as MSc. M.Phil. and Ph.D in related disciplines.
