4 Regional G-WADI Workshop on Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources Management in Arid and Semi-Arid Zones Tehran, Iran 20 – 23 June 2011

5

6 Key Lecturers - Dr Anil Mishra - Prof. Hossein Sedghi - Dr Froud Sharifi

7 Workshop Themes Session 1: Monitoring and Modeling Climate Change Session 2: Impacts of Climate Change dealing with uncertainty Session 3: Adaptation Strategies to Climate Change

8 Climate Change A Global Concern

9 Research Basis Identify patterns of climate change using the methods and smart models such as artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, Genetic programming and the probable evolutionary scenarios to optimize the use of entropy theory and chaos theory Develop a Road Map to control global climate change and its destructive effects, with the participation of all countries Altering the process of clean energy production and commercializing Simultaneous by the use of carbon-free technologies and renewable energies Research on the use of innovative technologies and research opportunities for human in the scale of trans planetary and Latent energy of the plasma How to adapt to climate change in condition of inevitable climate change

10 Main Impacts of Climate Change Increased ground temperature Changing in the sea levels Changes in agricultural products Abnormal effects of Health Natural disasters Increase Damage to Ecosystems Forest fires Low carbon absorption
