It is no secret that the Central Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions, but still poorly involved in global processes to combat climate change. In order to solve this problem, the “Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Program for the Aral Sea Basin” (CAMP4ASB) had been created. The main objective of the project is to provide knowledge about climate change, demonstrate existing results, successes and lessons learned, as well as to find solutions in this area.
However, to tackle such multifaceted and comprehensive problems as climate change, the efforts of one project may not be enough. The consolidation of efforts of all interested parties is required. The stakeholders of the project, in this case, are representatives of government bodies, including local authorities, civil society organizations, media, farming communities, as well as international and regional organizations.
The project interacts with stakeholders by the mean of various activities supported by the project. These are annual conferences on climate change, and regular seminars, trainings and meetings, which are held at the international, regional, and national levels and are focused on individual target groups. The project actively uses such a form of interaction with stakeholders as competitions held among journalists and photo reporters, researchers, and farmers. Stakeholders are informed through the media and social media, as well as through the development of the Central Asian Climate Information Portal - - http://www.ca-climate.org/. The Work with civil society organizations is carried out within the framework of the Regional Climate Network of NGOs based on annual plans determined on the basis of proposals of its participants.
In the context of the global coronavirus pandemic, remote forms of work with stakeholders are becoming more and more popular.
