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.
