|Overview : Overview: The project seeks to strengthen agricultural water management practices at both local and national levels in response to climate change-induced water scarcity. The project is supporting the design and delivery of concrete water adaptation measures for local vulnerable communities in three typical agro-ecological regions in Turkmenistan. These regions are: Desert irrigated agriculture (cotton, wheat production) in Sakar Chaga region; Desert pasture livestock (sheep, camel farming) in Karakum region; Mountain rain fed agriculture (fruit, vegetables) in Nohur region. An initial scoping phase has identified a package of farm-level adaptation measures to be implemented. These measures are designed improve resilience against potential reduction in water availability. Some of these measures are irrigation and livestock water supply oriented. Project funds will be provided for the necessary infrastructure in Nohur Project Region;and to measure their efficacy; The construction of the water reservoir with the capacity of 400 m3 will create a reliable source of water for the existing irrigation systems and for watering livestock in the area; In this regard, according to the Project Plan materials for construction of concrete basin (capacity - 400 м3) for water storage is in need.
