Head, Climate Change Centre
Side Event: Thirteenth Session of the SBSTA/SBI UNFCCC,
5 June 2009
The project touched the following aspects in terms of vulnerability and adaptation assessment:
- Water resources
- Natural ecosystems, forests, land and soil
- Water economy
For the past 60 years air temperature in selected parts of the country increased by 1C (populated areas in south-central TJK).
Many small glaciers in Tajikistan totally disappeared due to recent climate warming
Due to ice melting risks of long term water deficit and glacial lakes formation and sudden outburst floods are increasing
Water towers of Central Asia
- Industrial processes
- Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry
The main greenhouse gases:
- CF4 and C2F6 (from aluminium production)
- GHG precursors and SO2
Decrease of CO2 in the energy sector is mostly due to decreased fossil fuel use and energy crisis
- Ratification of the Kyoto Protocol by TAJ in 2008
- Adoption of the National Programme of renewable energy development for 2007-2015
- Follow-up the National Action Plan on climate change mitigation
- Development of renewable energy, mainly hydropower (in the last decade about 20 small and medium HPPs were installed)
- Energy efficiency (new energy efficient equipment and electronic devices installed in the key energy-intense industry such as Tajik Aluminum Plant; transportation network improved)
- Plans for substantial growth of hydropower production by 2015-20
- Afforestation efforts
- model long-term climate change scenarios and impacts in the mountains and valleys of Tajikistan
- long-term forecast of water resource availability in of the main rivers of Tajikistan (cross-border)
