We have designed a poster for Asian G-WADI to promote its visibility. Download here (5.41MB, pdf).
Pre-print Asian G-WADI information brochure (PDF) is available now. As per contract, we will print 5,000 copies of the information brochure and distribute 1000 copies each to UNESCO Offices in Almaty, Beijing, New Delhi and Tehran for further dissemination and keep 1000 copies at Asian G-WADI secretariat.

In Lanzhou/China, 28 representatives of the Asian G-WADI members from Ten Asian member countries (Afghanistan, China, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan), as well as representatives of UNESCO Offices (Beijing/New Delhi/Tehran), some members of the Steering Committee of the Global G-WADI Programme and few observers from other regions of the world met, presented country reports and discussed various issues related to the Asian G-WADI Network.

G-WADI’07 Lanzhou, China, June 11-15, 2007
The ground water is a major component of water resource in arid regions. Additionally, the interaction between ground and surface water is very complex in arid regions. Computer models and other new technologies such as isotope are providing quantitative tools for characterizing these processes.
A better understanding of ground water dynamics through the proper use of groundwater modelling tools will help people to manage precious water resources in watersheds of arid areas.
Ground water modeller, government and watershed manager and decision maker, scientist, graduate student, and local stakeholder are the potential participants for this training workshop. Members of G-WADI Asia network are also expected to attend this workshop and the following special Asian meeting.
The aim of the proposed workshop is to transfer the technology in ground water modelling and introduce the latest development in this field. The participants will be trained by world class experts in the field of ground water research. They also will be equipped with up-to-date modelling tools, web materials, and a connection with good expertise, which will enable them to have new insights into how to use ground water more appropriately in arid regions.
G-WADI Committee, UNESCO regional offices (Beijing, Almaty, Delhi and Tehran), and CAREERI/CAS are extending financial contribution for organizing this training course.
