Scenarios of Development of whether modification technologies, In order to deal with climate change in Iran; HAARP case study

Document Type : Research Article




Iran as a country with extreme consequences of climate Faced with severe water stress. It is predicted that by 2064 the state of the country's water scarcity and climate change will still be affected. The effort to modify these changes has helped the technology to begin a few years ago with the help of technology Started a few years ago. In this paper, with the help of the Expert Panel and the Delphi process, Effective Key factors the development of these technologies in Iran has been investigated. And by being determined driving forces, we can, the scenarios for developing these technologies are outlined in Iran. By identifying three drivers with the highest uncertainty, we arrived at four different scenarios. The factors that have the most impact and uncertainty about Iran's access to Haarp technology include: a) political relationships with the countries affected by the implementation of the plan (due to the military-security dimension), b) financial support by the government, and c) access to specialized knowledge Primary Based on this, four scenarios were obtained: 1- continuation of 2-Haarp 3-misery 4- alternative strategies.
