Cooperation with Uzbekistan through BMBF-funded project

Hauptinhalt der Seite




​Dr. Ahmad Hamidov, researcher in the Impact Assessment working group at ZALF, coordinates a new BMBF funded project about “Sustainable water-saving irrigation technologies for achieving water, energy and food security in the context of climate change in Uzbekistan (SusWEF)”. The project is funded in the frame of Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation Initiative between Germany and Uzbekistan. ​​

​​The project will provide scientific support to the introduction of modern water- and energy-saving irrigation technologies (e.g. drip and sprinkler irrigation) in Uzbekistan. It intends to support improving existing policies and ​strategies through performing sustainability research on water- and energy-saving technologies and supporting soil health in the context of climate change. The impacts of promoting modern irrigation technologies on ex-ante rebound effects will be explored using stakeholder-based participatory assessment. A special focus of the project will be to train young professionals from Uzbekistan in using advanced scientific methods (e.g. GIS, hydrological and topographical data collection, and impact assessment) and in publishing papers in international journals.

​The project was started on 1 September 2022 and will be implemented during the next two years in cooperation with partners in Uzbekistan (“Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Agricultural Mechanization Engineers” National Research University, International Water Management Institute-Central Asia office, SMART InnoTech LLC).
