The International Water Management Institute (IWMI, Uzbekistan Office) jointly with University Manchester, UK organized a workshop for government organisations and interested stakeholders working on the interaction of water-energy- food and the environment. The world and the region needs to develop plans and implement them to mitigate the impact of climate change – using less fossil fuel to drive energy supplies; adapt to changing water needs as well as cope with increasing water shortages; as well as develop a sustainability agenda to meet the UN-Sustainable development Goals. Against this background, the University of Manchester and IWMI have developed a series of modeling tools and frameworks to support planning and implementation around the so called water-energy food nexus under a project called Future Dams supported and funded by FCDO and UK Government. Today, 28th March a workshop in Tashkent is took place to present the overall framework and progress with assembling data for the Amu Darya River basin and possible future scenarios presented to participants. Following the presentation attendees were invited to share their specific needs around planning and implementation around water energy and food and how the tools and data might be further developed to address these.
