The Research Institute for Water Resources Studies and Research was established in 1996 with the aim of conducting applied research required by the country’s water sector in the field of water resources management.
This research institute consists of three research groups entitled “New technologies for resource and consumption assessment”, “Quantitative and qualitative management of catchments” and “Hydrological processes and forecasts”.
Addressing the challenges of the country’s water sector in the field of water resources and consumption management, requires conducting research and applied research in accordance with existing priorities.
Therefore, at the same time with the establishment of the Water Research Institute, the Research Institute for Studies and Research of Water Resources was established and started operating with the aim of meeting this need.
The defined field of activity for this research institute is conducting large-scale, governance and challenging research projects related to recognizing water cycle processes, quantitative and qualitative evaluation of water resources and uses, and comprehensive and sustainable management of water resources, as well as managing case studies required in various management departments. The country’s water is provided by the country’s academic and research body.
In line with these goals, the Research Institute for Studies and Research of Water Resources consists of the following three research groups:
- Quantitative and qualitative management group of catchments.
- Department of New Technologies for Resource and Consumption Evaluation.
- Group of hydrological processes and forecasts.
- Major and governance research required by the country’s water management.
- Technical and executive strategies for interconnected water resources management.
- Recognition and modeling of processes related to the quantity and quality of surface waters in the country.
- Risk management of extreme weather events.
- Improving the management of water resources and consumption.
- Management and exploitation of deep and groundwater.
- Economic, social and legal issues and challenges of water.
- Utilizing new technologies in quantitative and qualitative management of water resources
- Optimal management of water reservoir operation.
- Appropriate groundwork for the promotion of research activities in the field of water resources.
- Acquisition and application of new scientific methods in the optimal use of water resources
- Establish effective communication with experts in the field of water resources and related sciences.
- Identifying the research needs of the country’s water sector.
