Action and satellite sites of the Central Asia target region

Whereas in the WANA region there is sufficient contiguity to spatially define Benchmark Areas, this is not the case in Central Asia, hence an exclusive focus on Action Sites and Satellite Sites. Three Action Sites and a Satellite Site are planned in Central Asia, and one Satellite Site in the Caucasus.
The Aral-Turkestan Lowland Action Site (SRT2-AS1) covers the area around the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and will primarily focus research on land reclamation, effective water management, and soil fertility increase.
The Action Site covering the Rasht Valley in parts of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan (SRT2-AS2) will primarily focus research on soil erosion and landslides control, livestock improvement, and processing and marketing of local products.
In the Ferghana Valley and Southern Kazakhstan (SRT3-AS1) research will focus on Improved water management, and agro-technical measures in crop production, fruits and vegetables, livestock and fodder.
In the Kashkadarya Region Satellite Site (SRT3-SS1) research will be conducted on plant breeding and seed production.
The Satellite Site in the Caucasus (the Kura-Araks Lowland, SRT3-SS2) will focus research on improvement of irrigation schemes and de-salinization of soils.
