SEMINAR ON CLIMATE CHANGE VULNERABILITY & ADAPTATION FOR SUSTAINABLE WATER RESOURCES IN RESEARCH, PLANNING & MANAGEMENT
DATE : 18 AUGUST 2015
TIME : 8.00 AM – 5.00 PM
VENUE : PUTRAJAYA MARRIOTT HOTEL
Water is undoubtedly an essential element not only for life; it is an integral part of the earth and weather patterns and is intrinsically linked with our critical national interest.Due to uncertain characteristics and trends, climate change will affect current water management practices and the operation of existing water-related infrastructures, which are very likely to be inadequate to overcome the negative impacts of climate change.Therefore enhancement and modification of current engineering practices have to be incorporated with consideration of climate change effects in order to achieve the objectives of designated adaptation programs effectively and thus develop sustainable management strategies and frameworks.
1.To highlight research findings from climate change studies and their impacts on hydrology and water resources;
2.To emphasize the importance of climate change R&D for bridging the gap between science and engineering;
3.To enhance national and local understanding of climate change vulnerability and mainstreaming climate change adaptation into planning and development for sustainable water resources management.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Policy and decision makers, government officials, private sectors, NGOs, researchers, academics and those who are involved and interested in climate change vulnerability and adaptations, and management of water resources and water-related infrastructure.
