Agricultural potential and food se-curity in Central Asia in the light of climate change

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


What is the agricultural potential of the Central Asian region, comprised of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, in the light of food secu-rity and the intensification of regional agricultural production? The focus should be on animal husbandry, arable farming and horticulture. What are the most obvious issues for the region in terms of agricultural devel-opment? Where possible, consider the agricultural potential in the light of the known and possible effects brought about by climate changes. How will a global rise in temperatures affect greenhouse gas emissions and, as a consequence, impact on land use and revenues per hectare? What does further intensification involving more input usage mean for both current and possible environmental issues and present and future greenhouse gas emissions? This report provides an overview of readily available and relevant data and litera-ture. It contains a number of indicators which demonstrate a country's agricultural potential and food security.
