December 14, 2022
Turkmenabat, 7-9 December 2022: Within the framework of the project "Development of the National Adaptation Planning Process (NAP) in Turkmenistan", implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), with the financial support of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection of Turkmenistan, a practical training on the use of hydrological equipment was organized for the specialists of the Hydrometeorological Service at Ministry of Agriculture and Environment Protection of Turkmenistan.
Hydrologists from Ashgabat, Lebap, Mary and Balkan regions gathered in Turkmenabat for a theoretical overview and practical experience. The international expert of the UNDP from the German company OTT Hydromet GmbH, Mr. Lee Gardner, familiarized the participants with the operation of devices for measuring the flow velocity and water discharge in large and small rivers. Practical training was carried out on irrigation channel that diverts water from Amudarya river to the Charjew and Danew districts of the Lebap region. Part of the training was devoted to processing the received data with the support of OTT QReview software. The commissioning of these modern hydrological tools will increase the accuracy of data, as well as optimize the daily work processes of Turkmen hydrologists. Furthermore, it can simplify data collection and facilitate digital data archiving.
NAP project aims to increase the capacity of specialists and institutions involved in adaptation planning. Hydrometeorological Service under the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment Protection of Turkmenistan is a key organization that provides support in adaptation planning of very important, but vulnerable to climate change sectors of the national economy, such as agriculture and water resources management.
