The problem of global climate change in the course of human impact on the environment is extremely topical for individual societies, in particular, and the whole world community, in general. Over the recent period, large quantities of species, forms, kinds, families and varieties of local flora and fauna have disappeared, especially in mountainous regions of the world, including Tajikistan. On the other hand, risks associated with global warming continue to pose new challenges for the state, scientists and the population, to ensure food security in the future.
The given situation requires an adoption of new policy measures to enhance the adaptive capacity of societies, rational use of natural resources and conservation of local biodiversity, especially in mountainous regions. In this regard, scientists in Central Asia plan to conduct research in mountainous areas of the region covering the nature of climate change and increase in adaptive potential of local flora and fauna.
