Government awareness and support.

The link between climate change and the occurrence of natural disasters was proved by American scientists who discovered traces of warming in the study of tropical cyclones in the Pacific Ocean, unusually high summer temperatures in Europe, China, South Korea and Argentina, as well as forest fires in the US state of California. Climate change also catalyzed droughts in Africa and the Middle East, snowstorms in Nepal and heavy downpours that caused floods in Canada and New Zealand.

Due to its geographical features, Central Asia is subject to various types of natural hazards. The semi-arid climate of the region naturally leads to the fact that people and economic activities are concentrated on more fertile lands, which, however, are at higher risk, for example, in the floodplains of Central Asian rivers. As a result of population growth, increased economic assets, urbanization, and aging infrastructure and environmental degradation, disasters in Central Asia are likely to become more severe.

However, temperatures in the region are expected to rise by up to 4 ° C by the end of the century, increasing the impact of extreme weather events. For example, climate change in Central Asia is projected to disappear one third of glaciers, increasing the risk of flooding triggered by outburst of glacial lakes.

The government of the country must promptly and competently respond to natural measures related, among other things, to climate change.

Our University together with “GosKomEkologiya” contributes to informing and supporting the government, if necessary, in case of local natural disasters related to climate change and regularly monitors risks.
