|Title||Improving the reclamation condition of land along the Darialyk Collector|
|Category of tools||Collector-drainage system|
|Field of application||
|Usability of practice for adaptation to climate change||Low|
|Implemented by||State Program
Province: Daşoguz Region
|Practice also applied in the following localities||
Area supplied with water via the Darialyk Collector
Lower reaches of the Amu Darya River Basin
|Practice usage period||
Start date: 01.01.2009
End date: 31.12.2015
|Problem solved through this practice||
Expanding salination of irrigated land
|Tools used in the practice||
Set of measures to enhance the reclamation condition of land (motorized cleaning of the collector, reconstruction of hydro-technical facilities, etc.).
|Description of the practice and its results||
A set of measures to rehabilitate the Darialyk Collector executed to improve land reclamation condition.
The executed actions allowed lowering the level of ground water occurrence, thus, enhancing the overall land reclamation condition in target area as well as improving water drainage in adjacent areas.
|Lessons learnt and recommendations made||
Lowered ground water level and improved reclamation status of irrigated land allowed tenant farmers and daikhan (farmer) associations in Dashoguz Velayat (Region) to increase crop productivity and, thus, gain additional income.
Major project efforts to enhance the overall land condition in the target area resulted in improved public welfare. The practice can benefit from the relevant Uzbekistan’s experience (systemic cleaning of collectors) – cleaning of intra-farm water supply networks simultaneously with inter-farm and/or main collector systems. Uzbekistan’s model demonstrated sharp improvement of reclamation condition of entire land massifs. Ecosystems are extremely vulnerable and without proper care future generations will have to take much more effort and spend more resources to restore them.
