“Supporting the restoration and productive use of Central Asia’s rain-fed areas through rainwater harvesting and efficient water use”

3rd International Training Course from 05th till 08th of November, 2016 in Jalalabad, Kyrgyzstan

Large parts of Central Asia consist of (semi-)arid rain-fed land. As a result of improper resource management vast areas are affected by land degradation-with negative consequences in form of decreasing land productivity and increasing disaster risks.

To improve the situation in a sustainable manner requires substantial changes in perception and applied land use practices. For large areas there is an urgent need to restore a robust vegetative cover and to manage the land in accordance to its specific characteristics in form of (agro-) forestry- or silvo-pastoral systems.

Together with the application of complementary measures to enhance efficient water resource utilization, the use of simple, affordable, techniques for rainwater harvesting can make important contributions to support land restoration and the more productive use of (semi-)arid rain-fed areas.

Enhancing rainwater harvesting and efficient water use at community level as well as in distant locations furthermore represent important elements for climate change adaptation in regions that are likely to be affected in the future by decreasing availability of melting water from glaciers, reduced precipitation and/ or increasing temperatures.

The 3,5 days training course will provide participants among other an overview about the integrated water resource management approach and different techniques for rainwater harvesting and efficient water use. Practical sessions include the construction of simple plastic lined rainwater harvesting structures and the application of complementary measures for improved water resource utilization in rain-fed areas.

The training course will be conducted in English/ Russian language. The minimum (maximum) number of participants for the training course is 10 (20) persons. The training course fee, which covers tuition, course materials as well as lunch during the training period, is Euro 300,-. Due to the departure of the trainer from Central Asia in December 2016, the announced training course will be the last one of this kind.

Deadline for the submission of applications, which should be send to Frank Löwen (email: Этот адрес электронной почты защищен от спам-ботов. У вас должен быть включен JavaScript для просмотра. ) is the 20th of October, 2016.
