Under the leadership of the Finnish Consulting Group and in collaboration with the Finnish Meteorological Institute, FutureWater has recently started a new project on climate change adaptation in Central Asia. The project is financially support by the Asian Development Bank and will be executed during the next 1.5 years.  The project will be focused on the Aral Sea basin (Pamir and Tien Shan mountains) in Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The project will collect especially topographic, climatologic, hydrologic and socio-economic data in order to develop hydrological models for the Amu Darya and Syr Darya and include several climate change impact scenarios. The project will then develop national capacity in each of the participating countries to use the models to prepare climate change impact scenarios and develop adaptation strategies. This will then result in improved national strategies for climate change adaptation. We will closely collaborate with the main regional and national organizations responsible for land and water management.
