Issues on Climate change had been a long term debate. It had been started on The developing countries are considered as regions which have the most vulnerable to climate
1970's, based on a paradigm that everything in the world is interconnected, such
that when irresponsible environment's unfriendly activities pursue, like
deforestations and green house gases waste producing ones, an atmospheric
hole will be formed causing an atmospheric temperature increase and in turn
making polar ice melt and seawater rise. An overal change of wind
characteristics and oceanic current accrue, and thusly the climate change. To
date the issue imposes a central discourse in politics and science alike, due to
its impacts to the world and its foreseeable future.
The major impacts and threats of climate change in water resources is primarily
on the change in its hydrologic cycle pitch, which is in turn will need the change
of the engineering and management system and through these the socio-
cultural-economic system. The increase in incidence of extremes, such as
floods and droughts, would cause increased frequency and severity of disasters.
The sea level rise would inundate wetland and increase lowlands, accelerate
coastal erosion, exacerbate coastal flooding. Threaten coastal structures, raise
water tables, and increase the salinity of rivers, bays, and aquifers will also

change impacts because they have fewer resources to adapt: socially, technologically and
financially. Because of that, on December 2007 in the UNCC conference in Bali, all members of
a council made an agreement that will allow the Adaptation Fund to fund projects in developing
countries that will help people cope with the impacts of climate change over the next four years.
They were also agreed on a new programme to scale up investment for the transfer of clean
technologies to developing countries. .
Based on the above reasons, the Indonesian Association of Hydraulic Engineering (HATHI) as
one of the most leading professional organizations in Indonesia, and also as the “agent of
change” in the field of water resources and coastal engineering and management is prompted
to contribute in resolving these problems and reducing the impacts of climate change.
Together with the Ministry of Public Works, IAHR, UNESCO-IHE, TU-DELFT, DELFT
HYDRAULICS, and Manado City Government, HATHI intend to host the International Seminar
on Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources and Coastal Management in Developing
Countries and invites scientists, practitioners, and professionals in the field of water resources
and coastal engineering and management from all over the world to present their ideas,
exchange of experiences and expose their research results in this seminar.
The programme during conference could be seen in the Final Announcement that
