About Iran Vision 2026

in a five-year economic development plan in March 2005, the Iranian government issued a document called Iran’s 20-Year Economic Perspective, outlining a road map for the country’s economic, political, social and cultural developments during the next two decades.
The Perspective’s 20-year objectives actually contain some reasonably favorable potential. With only one percent of the world’s population, Iran rank seventh in mineral wealth, possessing 10 percent of proven global petroleum reserves and 16 percent of the earth’s natural-gas deposits. New mineral wealth is being discovered each year, and a large part of the country is still unexplored.
Iran is now called the region’s most “wired” nation, with more than one-third of its 72 million people having access to the Internet. The two-thirds under 30 are also educated young men and women ready to participate in building a thriving and prosperous Iran. Variegated climate and favorable topography allow for a rich agriculture under Conducive policies. With a strategic location, surrounded by 15 land and sea neighbors, Iran can serve as a lucrative trade and transit route in both north-south and east-west directions.
 Its abundant natural and human resources would be magnets for foreign direct investment if a hospitable business climate and sufficient incentives should prevail. Finally, the minimal infrastructure needed for growth and development (roads, railroads, air and sea ports and modern communications) is already in place to promote and sustain growth under proper maintenance.

Objectives of the 5th Symposium

• To promote effective gathering and dialogue among those involved in research and development activities in Climate Change Mitigation, Vulnerability, and Adaptation.

• To make a bridge between government & non-governmental organizations concerned in such activities.

• Introducing the climate change agreements to petrochemical industry

• To planning for oil industry adaptation with new climate change policies.

• To create and disseminate the knowledge about Climate Change and Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

• To make a platform for scientists and other personnel to discuss issues and policies related to Climate Change.

• To enhance contribution to new developments in the field of Environmental Sciences through the findings and discussion of the conference

• Promote young researchers and scientists to carry forward more studies and research on Climate change

5th International Symposium in IRAN Vision 2026

The 5th symposium of IRAN Vision 2026 is one of the important series of conferences regarding strategic research and planning programs in IRAN. The symposium board is interested to support all debates between scholars, politicians and interested people on vision 2026 and wish these researches can be helpful. Our 4 previous symposiums were exploring priorities of vision, during last decade.The first was determined important of developing management.The second worked on crisis in IRAN and free zones roles. The third one was focusing on energy management. And the forth one, gives is an understanding of importance of water and energy. Now we are going to have international conference about Environmental strategies and climate change essentials according the Paris Agreement2015. All these four symposiums had attendance of highest government members of Islamic Republic of IRAN, such as Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani and cabinet ministers such as petroleum minister Mr. Bijan Zanganeh, Minister of Energy Mr. Hamid Chitchian, Minister of Industry Mr. Mohammad R. Nemat Zadeh, Minister of Economy Mr. Ali Tayyeb Nia. Our partners from international organizations are UN and UNDP representative in Iran, Mr. Gary Lewis, UNESCO Director in Iran Mrs. Esther Kuisch Laroche, UNFPA representative in Iran Mr. Hulki Uz, ECO organization In Iran Mr. Shamil Aleskerov and several university professors from Europa and all around the world.
All these history accomplished with honor and wish to be continuing proudly in 5th Symposium in 7 March 2017 in IICC Tehran.

About Paris Agreement 2015 (Climate Change Issue)

Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. Climatology, the science of Climate and its relation to plant and animal life, is important in many fields, including agriculture, aviation, medicine, industry and geography. Changes in Climate affect, for example, the plant and animal life of a given area.
Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"1 — warming those results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Human activities are changing the natural greenhouse. Over the last century the burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil has increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) is a set of technologies that can greatly reduce CO2 emissions from new and existing coal- and gas-fired power plants and large industrial sources. Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) could play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while enabling low-carbon electricity generation from power plants. Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) can significantly reduce emissions from large stationary sources of CO2, which include coal- and natural-gas-fired power plants, as well as certain industry types such as ethanol and natural gas processing plants.
Activities that aim at raising awareness and improving access to scientific information on adaptation, so that decision-makers can better integrate climate change issues in development planning and poverty reduction measures.
The activities include national science-policy dialogues, regional knowledge sharing strategies, and regional trainings. The science-policy dialogues are designed to address the need for better two-way interaction and communication at the science-policy interface on climate change issues, particularly on adaptation. Energy efficiency opportunities, which are of particular importance to cities, are buildings and district energy systems. To build a regulatory strategy, establish enabling legislation and regulatory standards, and set up enforcement mechanisms.

Petrochemical Industry Vision

The lifting of over a decade long sanctions on Iran has attracted huge international interests onto the country. A huge domestic market characterized by a 79-million strong population adds to Iran’s geographical advantageous location in the Middle East which in turn gives it access to strategic maritime passages making it a viable market for global access and hence increased investment potential. Development of the petrochemical value chain is one of the most promising avenues that are expected to significantly add value to its non-oil economy.
Abundance of feedstock, relatively suitable infrastructure, low cost of production and access to skilled labors are key factors that make Iran interesting for investors in the petrochemical space. The country’s natural reserves of Ethane, Propane and Naphtha are sufficient to set up new petrochemical complexes within the next ten years.
According to Iran vision 2025, the country plans to emerge as the largest producer of petrochemical products along the value chain in the region. Plastics, rubbers, paints and resins, fertilizer and pesticides, chemicals and solvents, fibers and textiles, medicines, cosmetics, composites, and detergents are the various downstream petrochemical products that the country proposes to focus for development in the next 10 years.
In the post-sanction era, the country proposes to attract foreign investment to resume over 60 halted petrochemical projects that shall increase the current production capacity of 58 million tons (FY2015) to 130 million tons per annum in the next 5 years. In addition, the Government has further proposed 36 new investment opportunities which when implemented have the potential to increase the total production capacity of petrochemical products to over 180 million tons per annum by the end of 2025.
Sustained and planned development of the entire value chain for the petrochemical industry with focused development of downstream markets is expected to bring significant value addition to Iran’s economy and is likely to support reduction in the country’s unemployment rate. Lifting of sanctions is expected to usher huge opportunities for the country through access to advanced technologies and international financial resources. This is expected to significantly boost Iran’s image in the global petrochemical industry landscape
