Management of Water Resources for Prevention of the Climate Change

    The seminar on the ‘Management of Water Resources for Prevention of the Climate Change’ was held in Seoul and Daydjong (Republic of Korea) on 3-13 October 2010. The representatives of the eight countries, including Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Nauru, Nepal and the New Papua Guinea, took part in the seminar. Within the framework of the cooperation of the Republic of Uzbekistan with the Korean Agency for the International Cooperation (KOICA), the representatives of Uzbekistan also participated in this seminar.
    During the training seminar, participants got acquainted with the initiative ‘Green Growth’, the problems of water resources management, remote control of multifunctional dams and efficient use of water resources in  Southern Korea.
    Employees of the State Committee for Nature Protection and the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources of the Republic of Uzbekistan took part in lectures, visited field objects, included into the program of the course, made the presentation on ‘Management of Water Resources in the Republic of Uzbekistan’.
    According to the presented reports of countries-participants of this seminar, there are the following problems: in the area of shortage of water in such countries as Southern Korea, Laos, Azerbaijan, Nauru  and Kyrgyzstan; water purification in Cambodia and Nepal; water supply and management of water resources in the New Papua Guinea. The problems concerned with floods in Korea, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan and Cambodia were also discussed.
    Summarizing the training seminar we can mark that efficient use and management of water resources in Southern Korea are mainly based on remote control of multifunctional dams both during the dry period for accumulation of water and during the period of rains for prevention of floods. The policy ‘Green Growth’ is the main area in the nature protection activity in Southern Korea. It integrates economical development and ecological well-being in the country. The policy ‘Green Growth’ is based on the development and successful introduction of new ecological friendly technologies into the economy of the country.
    Studding the experience and practice of Korea, we can make the conclusion that development of the country and improvement of the environmental conditions and also development of nature protection policy are based on the successful introduction of scientific developments into practice, including technologies in the field of water purification, remote control and monitoring of the water quality.
    Based on all this, the necessity of use of experience of the Republic of Korea in improvement of the environment monitoring system and management of water resources emerges.
