G-WADI’07 Lanzhou, China, June 11-15, 2007

G-WADI 2007 Lanzhou

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.
