  • 3. Action site for sustainable intensification Fergana Valley including Batken, Jalalabad, Osh regions (Kyrgyzstan), Sughd region (Tajikistan), Andijan, Namangan, Fergana regions (Uzbekistan) Characteristics: water for irrigation, options for diversified production systems for cotton-wheat-livestock-vegetables and horticultural crops, characterized by unique agro-biodiversity, along with good research and transport infrastructure are some of the factors that can lead to higher standards of living of the local population.
  • 4. • Operational since 1998 • Eleven CGIAR and non-CGIAR Centers • Eight NARS • Hosted by ICARDA • Each Center has own mandate and expertise – transfer, testing and development of technologies • Governance by Steering Committee • Program Facilitation Unit in Tashkent provides policy, technical and administrative support • Financing by the participating Centers • Portfolio of about 70 projects since 1998 • Strengthening local institutions, training Existing partnership: Regional Program for Sustainable Agricultural Development in CAC
  • 5. CGIAR Research Programs in CAC • Dryland Systems • Policies, Institutions and Markets • Wheat • Roots and Tubers • Dryland Cereals • Water, Land and Ecosystems • Forests, Trees and Agroforestry • Climate Change • Genetic Resources • Research problems are inter-related • Interdisciplinary approaches combined with site-specific implementation plans • Exploit synergies among Centers, avoid redundancy, contradictions and competition • Increased stakeholder participation for improving acceptability of research results • Opportunities for women, youth • Co-location of Centers and common procedures, resources offer opportunities for CRPs implementation in Central Asia
