"The problems of adaptation to climate change exist throughout the world, and our region of Central Asia is not an exception, vise versa, this question is more serious in our region. Looking at the total gross output of agricultural complex of five our states (Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan-KazTAG) the retention of its level in the condition of climate change is one of the main problems of the Central Asian states," he said.
Meanwhile, Iskandar Abdullayev, executive director of the regional ecological center of Central Asia confirmed the concern of Turkmenistan representative.
