Review of current and planned adaptation action: Central Asia

Source(s):  Adaptation Partnership

This document presents a review of current and planned adaptation action in Central Asia. It first provides an overview of adaptation action at the regional level, highlighting commonalities and differences between the following countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The appendices that follow discuss adaptation action taking place in each of these countries.

This document is one of 12 regional profiles completed as a contribution to the Review of Current and Planned Adaptation Action in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean. Its purpose is to provide a baseline understanding of who is doing what on adaptation in three developing regions—Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean—and in priority adaptation sectors. Based on available resources, it seeks to provide a rapid assessment of: (i) priority interests and adaptation needs; (ii) efforts by governments to support adaptation though policy and planning; (iii) the scope of international support for adaptation efforts in different countries and sectors; and (iv) potential gaps in adaptation efforts at the country and regional levels.
