During his stay at ZALF, three potential river basins (Amu-Surkhon, Amu-Bukhara, Amu-Kashkadarya) were identified for in-depth research. Moreover, first exploratory visit in 2020 to the selected river basin in Uzbekistan were agreed and a list of potential stakeholders involved in the WEF nexus decisions were developed. Kakhramon agreed to provide access to WEF-related local publications and support Dr. Hamidov during his empirical field stay in Uzbekistan.

On 5th December, Kakhramon gave a presentation titled “Research methodology for applying the Water–Energy–Food nexus in selected river basins in Uzbekistan”. The trip was financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and helps to reinforce cooperation between ZALF and researchers in Uzbekistan.
