AKHP Public Lecture, Khorog: Challenges of a New Time: Solutions for Water Problems in GBAO
Climate change and population growth are important factors that are impacting the availability of water resources. A larger share of water resources is being used for agriculture and other purposes in rural areas. Before the 1990s, water in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) was regulated through collective farms and Oblast-level water management bodies. Today, each farmer has to independently handle farm irrigation. Year after year, improper irrigation of land erodes lands and degrades crops. This lecture will offer efficient solutions for water-related problems in GBAO.
