The development of computer models of the physical, chemical and biological processes that take place in the environment allows for analysis of different alternatives and strategies for environmental resources management, without incurring the expense and difficulties of real-world implementation. The holistic approach to resources management calls for integration of natural and human systems through the process of Integrated Water Resources System (IWRM). In line with this new trend, a special program: MTERM (Modeling Tools for Environment and Resources Management), was established under Danida-AIT Cooperation Program (1999-2004). MTERM emphasizes on development and application of modeling tools for water resources and environmental management and on IWRM. MTERM Conference is an activity under this program.

[top]

The primary objective of the conference is to bring together international expertise in water and environment sectors where modeling skills and IWRM principles and concepts are needed and to share their experiences, innovative ideas, and to disseminate the state-of-the-art knowledge.

[top]

Researchers, professionals and students from various universities, institutes and organizations to present their research findings and share technical and operational information dealing with scientific approaches in management of water and environment .
