INTERNATIONAL TRAINING COURSE FROM 17TH APRIL TILL 20TH APRIL, 2016 IN JALALABAD/ KYRGYZSTAN

As a consequence of widespread inappropriate natural resource management practices, large portions of Central Asia are affected by severe land degradation. With current

development trends continuing, increasing portions of the region would end up as highly degraded marginal land. As a consequence the local population would be openly exposed to the consequences of severe ecological imbalances in the form of landslides, (flash-) floods, summer droughts, drying water sources, poor soils and decreasing land productivity. Already observed and/or predicted changes of the future climate regime have the potential to further worsen the impact of unsustainable land use practises.

In order to prevent a further deterioration of Central Asia’s` natural resources base, there is To avoid a further worsening of the natural resource situation in Central Asia, there is a need for a sharp u-turn in strategy. Rather than continuing to mainly tackle symptoms there is a need to pay more attention to the underlying root causes of advancing land degradation. To improve rural livelihoods in a sustainable way, the more careful and efficient use of locally available resources- in particular soil and water- is of utmost importance.

The 4 days training course covers key topics linked to integrated natural resource management and climate change adaptation and provides an overview about simple, efficient ways to improve the utilization of locally remaining natural resources. Class room sessions are complemented by a series of practical
exercises.

Reflecting the fact that more than ¾ of Central Asia is composed of (semi-) arid rain-fed land, during the training special emphasis will be paid on the assessment of current rain-fed land management practises and the description of viable options for improvement of the same areas.

The number of participants for the training course is limited to 20 persons. The training fee, which covers tuition, course materials as well as lunch during the training period, is Euro 350.
