Water - Critical Resource for Uzbekistan
Water is fundamental to human survival and development. Water scarcity has become a serious global challenge and has led to environmental degradation, damage to people’s livelihoods, and increasing population morbidity. Water scarcity is one of the main factors constraining the future development of Uzbekistan.
That is why the publication of this review is so opportune. The review
aims to inform a wide audience, including scientific and state institutions, about the growing water crisis and the threat this presents to the region, as well as the efforts of five
Central Asian states to jointly manage their water resources and restore the disturbed natural ecosystem of the area surrounding the Aral Sea.read morePublished by: UNDP Energy and Environment Unit

Policy Brief # 1, 2007. Options for Continuing Energy Reforms in Uzbekistan
According to most estimates, world fossil reserves make up more than 1
trillion barrels of oil, around 168 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and 1 trillion tons of coal. In addition, there are more than 3 million metric tons of uranium available for nuclear power. However, these resources are unevenly distributed across the world. For example, the developing world has a much greater share of
natural gas reserves at 77 percent, oil reserves at 75 percent and coal reserves at 58 percent. By contrast, the developed countries have only 24 percent of the world's natural gas, 25 percent of the oil and 42 percent of the coal.
This Policy Brief describes situation with Energy Resources in Uzbekistan and worldwide and suggests new opportunities for sustainable energy reforms. read morePublished by: UNDP
