2ND INTERNATIONAL TRAINING COURSE FROM 21TH TILL 23 TH OF APRIL, 2016 IN JALALABAD, KYRGYZSTAN

Most of Central Asia consists of ecologically highly fragile 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 foster land restoration and the more productive use of rain fed areas. Enhancing rainwater harvesting forms furthermore an important element for climate change adaptation in regions that are likely to be affected by decreasing precipitation and/or increasing temperatures.

The 3 days training course provides the participants with an overview about the integrated water resource management approach and different rainwater harvesting

approaches/ techniques. Practical sessions include the construction of simple plastic lined rainwater harvesting structures and the application of complementary measures for efficient water use.

The number of participants for the training course is limited to 15 persons. The training course fee, which covers tuition, course materials as well as lunch during the training period, is Euro 275.
