CCRD Program(s): Kazakhstan
Description: This technical report details the
findings of four stakeholder workshops that USAID helped conduct as part of a
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) project called “Improving the
Climate Resiliency of Kazakhstan Wheat and Central Asian Food Security.” Participants
in one workshop were national-level policy makers and stakeholders;
participants in the other three workshops were farmers and local authorities.
Small group exercises included discussions of the top problems facing the wheat
sector, decision-making at the farm level, perceptions of climate change and
potential impacts on the wheat sector, assessing vulnerability to climate
change and variability, and options for addressing vulnerability.
