UNDP Uzbekistan Water Resources
There are two river basins in Uzbekistan that form the Aral Sea basin. In addition to this, there are 94 major aquifers, and sporadic rainfall that is unevenly distributed, occurring mainly in the mountainous regions during the winter months. The water resources that are available are in short supply in much of Uzbekistan.n 1994, the agricultural sector contributed some 36 percent to GDP. In 1996, it employed about 33 percent of the total economically active population. The contribution of crop production to GDP was about 20 percent from irrigated crops and 2 percent from rain-fed crops. Cotton, called 'white gold' in Uzbekistan, vegetables and fruits are the country's principal exports. Uzbekistan is one of the world's largest cotton exporters. Irrigation in Uzbekistan started more than 2,500 years ago in the seven natural oases. At the beginning of the 20th century, about 1.2 million hectares were irrigated in Uzbekistan. Large-scale development started in the late 1950s, when the Soviet Union decided that Uzbekistan should specialize in the production of cotton. Modern irrigation techniques were then developed in the Hunger steppe in the central part of the country. By 1994, irrigation covered almost 4.3 million hectares, or about 82 percent of cultivated land.
We Destroyed the 4th Largest Lake in the World
For a while now, people have been changing the environment to suit their needs. But in recent years, we’re starting to realize that nature’s resources aren’t, in fact, infinite. If you take the almost complete destruction of the 4th largest lake in the world as an example, we can see a really gloomy picture...

For this, they diverted the two giant rivers feeding the Aral Sea: the Syr Darya to the north and the Amu Darya in the south. - With the canals dug and the rivers successfully diverted, the Aral Sea began to shrink. - In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed, but the now independent states sharing the lake continued to use the water supply from the rivers that once fed it. - By the end of the ‘80s, it had divided itself into two lakes: the North and South Aral Seas. Not only that, the salt content in it had also risen drastically. By 1990, the salinity had reached 36.7%. - Over the decades, the Aral Sea had diminished by an astounding 80%! Some part of it remained, but much of the space it formerly occupied became a desert wasteland. - The fishing industry that had once thrived in the region was no more. Even the small part of the Aral Sea that still remained a lake wasn’t suitable for fishing. - With financial aid from the World Bank, a recovery plan did begin in the North Aral Sea, and it’s currently being restored with the help of a concrete dam built in 2005 to separate the two halves of the lake. - The whole ecosystem has changed for the worse: a lot of land animals depended on the water and food that the Aral Sea provided, and they either died out or had to move somewhere else to survive.

News - How Soviet pollution destroyed the Aral Sea
In October 1990 Western scientists confirmed the virtual disappearance of the Aral Sea in Soviet Central Asia, formerly the fourth largest inland sea in the world. The loss of sea water was the result of 60 years of intensive agriculture and pollution by the Soviet authorities. It is considered the biggest manmade loss of water in recorded history. The surrounding areas were devastated. Local fisherman watched as the shore gradually receded and fish stocks ran out. Local children fell victim to respiratory illnesses. Professor Denys Brunsden, of London's King's College, was one of the first Western scientists to visit the Aral Sea in 1990. He spoke to Witness about the environmental devastation that he saw. Witness is a World Service radio programme of the stories of our times told by the people who were there. ★Subscribe to the News YouTube channel by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG81l00V3yiL5WRs3tcCzjQ?sub_confirmation=1 ★Please Like, share and comment my video!

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The Aral Sea () was an endorheic lake (one with no outflow) lying between Kazakhstan (Aktobe and Kyzylorda Regions) in the north and Uzbekistan (Karakalpakstan autonomous region) in the south. The name roughly translates as "Sea of Islands", referring to over 1,100 islands that had dotted its waters; in the Turkic languages aral means "island, archipelago". The Aral Sea drainage basin encompasses Uzbekistan and parts of Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Iran.Formerly the fourth-largest lake in the world with an area of 68,000 km2 (26,300 sq mi), the Aral Sea has been shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet irrigation projects. By 1997, it had declined to 10% of its original size, splitting into four lakes – the North Aral Sea, the eastern and western basins of the once far larger South Aral Sea, and one smaller intermediate lake. By 2009, the southeastern lake had disappeared and the southwestern lake had retreated to a thin strip at the western edge of the former southern sea; in subsequent years, occasional water flows have led to the southeastern lake sometimes being replenished to a small degree. Satellite images taken by NASA in August 2014 revealed that for the first time in modern history the eastern basin of the Aral Sea had completely dried up. The eastern basin is now called the Aralkum Desert. In an ongoing effort in Kazakhstan to save and replenish the North Aral Sea, a dam project was completed in 2005; in 2008, the water level in this lake had risen by 12 m (39 ft) compared to 2003. Salinity has dropped, and fish are again found in sufficient numbers for some fishing to be viable. The maximum depth of the North Aral Sea is 42 m (138 ft) (as of 2008).The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters". The region's once-prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The water from the diverted Syr Darya river is used to irrigate about 5 million acres (2 million hectares) of farmland in the Ferghana Valley. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequential serious public health problems. UNESCO added the historical documents concerning the development of the Aral Sea to its Memory of the World Register as a unique resource to study this "environmental tragedy".

04 Freshwater - how we deal with the resource (engl.).mov
Today we still do not handle water in a sustainable way. In many industrial countries there is too little awareness among people that water is a valuable commodity -- a prerequisite for handling the resource in a sustainable way. The largest consumer and waster of water worldwide is agriculture -- which accounts for 70 percent of all the resources used. Sadly, more than half of that volume is lost through inefficient irrigation. Industry uses 22 percent and eight percent flows into households.

Biblical wonder the Dead Sea is at risk of disappearing
After suffering from years of drought, the Dead Sea is facing an "environmental disaster in slow motion". Scientists are warning the sea level is falling by as much as 1.5m (5ft) per year - meaning it could be a tiny pool by the middle of the century. The crisis has seen sinkholes open up and resorts close in what is currently a popular tourist attraction. Growing populations in the area also mean there is competition for water resources. Dr Ofir Katz, an ecologist at the Dead Sea and Arava Science Center, offered a word of caution: "We need to take care of nature or else we all sink with it."

Lake Chad: Preserving a Precious Resource in the Sahel
Over the past 50 years, the surface area of Lake Chad has experienced significant climate, hydrological, ecological, and social changes. Throughout the last century, fishers, farmers, and herders from different ethnic groups migrated to the lake’s shores to exploit its rich natural resources and to flee droughts, famine, and conflicts in other parts of the region. These changes have created both opportunities and threats. In the face of additional pressure that climate change exerts on the region’s fragile natural resources, there is an urgent need to identify sustainable management options that will meet the development needs of the local population.

Shouldn't sea levels have risen by now?
Try Dashlane here: http://dashlane.com/simonclark Get 10% off now with my promo code: simonclark ! In this video I answer the question: 'isn't climate change supposed to have risen sea levels by now?' by looking at one dataset in some detail, and reviewing the scientific literature. Also: Kevin Costner's Waterworld. My video on stopping climate change: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkbuV_a-rvs This video was light on the potential impacts of sea level rise. I wanted to focus specifically on the perception that sea levels have not changed, and spend time on the data. If you’re interested in the potential impacts then https://www.ipcc.ch/site/assets/uploads/2018/02/ar5_wgII_spm_en.pdf is a must read. Anthropogenic climate change (AGW) is a fickle bit of science, and like much of environmental science sometimes changes on (relatively) long timescales and global extent can hide in plain sight. That seems to be the case with sea level rise. The data is very clear: sea levels have been rising faster and faster over the past century, and this is not caused by natural variability. Humanity's carbon emissions are radiatively forcing the planet, causing net warming and so thermal expansion of the oceans and melting of ice sheets. It appears that this is going to become more and more painfully obvious as this century wears on, and so the sooner we take action the better.

Water resources increasingly strained - The Colorado River
For six million years, the Colorado River ran its course from its soaring origins in the Rockies to a once-teeming two-million-acre delta, finally emptying 14 million acre-feet of fresh water into the Sea of Cortez. But now, the river does not reach the sea. Indeed, the Colorado River has not reached the sea since 1998 but ends rather in a cracked and desolate expanse of barren mud flats and abandoned boats — a "dry river cemetery," as Mr. McBride says in one of the clips of this video. A few videos put together for the MSc in Environmental Technology.

If you ask yourself where is Kazakhstan, it is a Eurasian country, with much of its land on the Asian continent. It used to be part of the USSR, but today it’s becoming a booming oil based economy.The capital of Kazakhstan is Astana, but Almaty used to hold that title before 1997. More information about the video content bellow: 1. Astana is one of the world’s newest and most futuristic capital cities. Astana literally means ‘capital city’ in Kazakh. And the capital is the second coldest capital city on earth, with temperatures dipping to -40 Celsius in the winter. 2. Kazakhstani people celebrate three New Year’s Eves. Two official ones, which are the 1 January by the Gregorian Calendar and the 22 March, "Nauryz" – the spring equinox or renewal of nature and 14th of January by the Julian Calendar is the legacy of the Soviet times. This day is called "the Old New Year". Old or new, they celebrate three times a year. 3. It is the largest landlocked country in the world, stretching from Siberia to the desserts of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and from China to the Caspian Sea. It is so large that distance from one end to another is about the same as London Istanbul route. Here one can find practically all climatic zones: from the torrid deserts through steppe and forest to eternal snows of the mountain heights reaching beyond the clouds. 4. The metro in Almaty (former capital until 1997) took 23 years to build and opened in December 2011. This is not because construction was slow, but because funding problems happened after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. But it is finally open and expansion is constantly taking place. 5. Fifty years ago the Aral Sea was the world's fourth inland sea, after the Caspian Sea, Lake Superior and Lake Victoria. It started shrinking due to Soviet irrigation projects, its surface area declining by more than 50 percent, to 30,000 square km from 67,000 square km, between 1960 and 1996. 6. Kazakhstan is unique in that its people, the Kazakhs, did not form the majority of the population upon independence in 1991. Currently the northern part of the country is populated mostly with Ukrainian and Russian majorities while Kazakhs are more prevalent in the south. 7. Located in Kazakhstan, Lake Balkhash is the 12th largest lake in the world, but that characteristic is hardly what makes it interesting. This lake is bizarre because the western part of the lake consists of freshwater and the eastern half is saltwater. Balkhash maintains this unlikely balance in part because the two halves are joined by a narrow straight that is 3.5 kilometers wide and six meters deep.

How The Sahara Desert Was Made - It Used To Be Green - Full Documentary
Some scientists believe ancient farming caused the Sahara to dry up. A new study suggests that the desertification of Sahara started about 7 million years ago, at least four million years earlier than previously thought. However, the widely-held belief is that the Sahara dried up due to a change in the Earth’s orbit, which affects solar insolation, or the amount of electromagnetic energy the Earth receives from the Sun. In simpler terms, insolation refers to the amount of sunlight shining down on a particular area at a certain time, and depends on factors such as the geographic location, time of day, season, landscape and local weather. Changes in the Earth’s tilt cause changes in weather patterns. Such a change is believed to have made the “Green Sahara” go dry. Climate scientist Gavin Schmidt, of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, explained that around 8,000 years ago, the Earth’s orbit was slightly different to how it is today. The tilt changed from around 24.1 degrees to the present-day 23.5 degrees. “Additionally, the Earth had its closest approach to the Sun in the northern hemisphere (with) summer in August,” Schmidt said. “Today, that closest approach is in January. So, summertime in the north was warmer back then than it is now.” The changes in the Earth’s orbital tilt and precession (or the wobbling motion) occur because of gravitational forces emanating from other bodies in the solar system. To understand exactly what happens, picture a spinning top when it is slightly disturbed. Just like a top, the Earth too wobbles slightly about its rotational axis. This tilt changes between roughly 22 and 25 degrees about every 41,000 years, while the precession varies on about a 26,000-year period. These cycles have been determined by astronomers and validated by geologists studying ocean sediment records. “If you get a long enough time series that can be well dated, you should be able to see frequencies in the data that correspond to the periods predicted by theory,” Schmidt explained.

Projective Sandscapes | AALU 2015
Projective Sandscapes delves into questions related to ongoing desertification processes and remote landscape influences. It tackles Europe’s desertifying processes due to over exploitation of natural resources and how their political and economic management controversially affects production dynamics and territorial organisation. The desiccation of the Aral Sea 68,000 square kilometres basin announced in October 2014 brings the attention on reckless water resources practices in Central Asia which produced the Aralkum Desert. To cope with the European production demand for cotton, Soviet implemented a massive plan of diversion of two rivers into the steppe of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan during the 60s. The 1991 transference of power meant the inheritance of unwise water use practices that are causing a spreading desertification and the emergence of threatening sand dunes shifting over the territory.

UN Joint Programme on Aral Sea
An official launch event of the new UN Joint Programme “Building the resilience of communities affected by the Aral Sea disaster through the Multi-partner Human Security Fund for the Aral Sea” was held in Tashkent, on February 10, 2017. A special UN mission represented by Ms. Mehrnaz Mostafavi, Head of Human Security Unit (HSU) and Mr. Martijn Dalhuijsen, representative of the United Nations Human Security Trust Fund (UNTFHS), took part in this event. A wide range of presentations and discussions illustrated negative impacts of the Aral Sea disaster as well as highlighted actions being taken by the Government of Uzbekistan jointly with United Nations to address the issues of the Aral Sea region. The event participants have also had a chance to review the results of the previous phase of the UN Joint Programme, implemented in Karakalpakstan (funded by UNTFHS) over the period of 2012–2016, the Programme’s achievements and overall outcomes, which enabled to expand the action plan of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) . The new Programme, initiated by the UN agencies in Uzbekistan – UNDP, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNV, is also funded by UNTFHS, as well as by internal resources of agencies, participating in the programme implementation. The newly launched Programme will be specifically focused on the human security needs of the region’s population, most vulnerable to adverse effects of the Aral Sea disaster. Improvement of the living standards and enhancement of income generation opportunities both for the population and communities are among the primary goals of the Programme as well.

Assignment Asia Episode 87: Loss and restoration
According to the UN Environment Program, degradation of the world’s natural resources is rapidly outpacing the planet’s ability to absorb the damage. The destruction is either permanent and irreversible, or extremely costly to tackle and restore. One such place is Bellandur Lake, one of the largest lakes in India’s Bangalore, which is drying up and catching fire. Jyothi Karat checks out the place that was once known as the City of Lakes. But it is not all gloom and doom. In Kazakhstan, Michal Bardavid found out how the restoration of the country’s Aral Sea has led to the return of the local population, while ensuring jobs and sustaining livelihoods.
