Mutually Acceptable Mechanism on Integrated Use of Water Resource through Applying Scenario Approach
Throughout 2012 the experts from Central Asian states and Afghanistan, as well as the representatives of the UN agencies and regional organizations participated in a range of meetings as a part of "Mutually Acceptable Mechanism on Integrated Use of Water Resources in Central Asia Through Applying a Scenario Approach" project jointly implemented by the UN Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) in collaboration with the Executive Committee of the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea (IFAS) to analyze the highly complex structure of the water-agriculture-energy nexus in Central Asia through innovative approaches such as "scenario thinking".
"Scenario thinking" encourages systematic thinking about the future, through a multi- stakeholder consultation process. It leads to a cross- sectoral perspective and highlights links between sectors. As such, the project fostered mutual understanding and alignment of views among participating parties.
As an outcome of the project, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization have prepared a video report on the project outputs.
The full video and interview by Fedor Klimtchouk, Deputy Head of UNRCCA, can be viewed below.
