Groundwater Sustainability in Central Asia Advancing institutional capacity in Karakalpakstan, a former Aral Sea region in Uzbekistan Part 3

March 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A free, four-part webinar series via Zoom hosted by Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute

The region of Karakalpakstan in northwestern Uzbekistan was once a thriving area supported by extensive irrigation within the Aral Sea basin. It now suffers from extensive droughts, upstream diversions from the Amu and Syr Darya rivers for irrigation, as well as severely impacted water quality.

Through this project and webinar series, we will examine the potential for water and land reclamation, explore innovative models and tools for ground- and surface-water resources management, examine water quality monitoring and reuse, uses for remote sensing in irrigated agriculture, compare water resources programs to help establish long-term scholar exchanges in this region.

Session 3: Water quality, crop production and water reuse

This session will cover water quality and crop production in arid regions and water reuse for irrigation.
