Publication date: 07 August 2018

How could climate-related information be used in the planning process? Even though integrating climate forecasts and data into sectoral planning is not yet widely practised in the countries of Central Asia, there are already first examples. Ms. Zoya Kretova, from the Agency for Hydrometeorology of the Kyrgyz Republic, tells how the Kyrgyz national hydrometeorological service builds capacity of experts in the field of climate services, what climate products are already there and how they could be improved, why tools for downscaling of global models and their interpretation are needed, how Kyrgyzhydromet develops climate change scenarios for Bishkek and other cities in the country.


Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Program for Aral Sea Basin or CAMP4ASB is implemented by CAREC and financed by the World Bank. The project aims to enhance regionally coordinated access to improved climate change knowledge services for key stakeholders (e.g., policymakers, communities, and civil society) in participating Central Asian countries as well as to increased investments and capacity building that, combined, will address climate challenges common to these countries.CAMP4ASB is implemented in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan during the period from 2016 to 2021.
