Water scarcity and ecological deterioration problems have become more severe in arid regions in both Central Asia and China’s northwest inland river basins, due to climate change and intensified human activities. The similarity of climate, geological features and water usage between Central Asia and Norwest of China has made it possible to extend our knowledge and experiences of integrated water resources management from years of studies in Heihe river basin to other inland river basins in Central Asia. This will not only benefit scientists and experts from all these countries to learn from each other but also intensify the existing exchanges among the scientific communities so as to benefit much a larger society.
The purpose of this training workshop is targeted at providing knowledge and experiences of integrated water resources management and sustainable development under climate change for young scientists and experts in Central Asian countries. The training will be provided by the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources, CAS and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich. The workshop will cover a wide spectrum of topics related to sustainable water resources management in arid regions, including remote sensing technology, eco-hydrological modelling, optimization of the water resources allocation, integrated surface and groundwater modeling, real-time data assimilation for modeling tools, real-time monitoring , modeling and controlling system for groundwater management, and management decision support system for inland river basins.
