|Title||Accumulation of rain and runoff water via a series of cascading storage pools (small reservoirs)|
|Category of tools||System for enhancing water availability|
|Field of application||
|Usability of practice for adaptation to climate change||High|
|Implemented by||Ministry of Water Management of Turkmenistan (4 res-ervoirs) and “Responding to climate change risks for dekhan farming system of Turkmenistan on national and local levels” Project (7 reservoirs)
Province: Ahal Region
|Practice also applied in the following localities||
Akhal Velayat (Region) (3 reservoirs) and Balkan Velayat (7 reservoirs); Archabil Etrap (District) (3 reservoirs) and Bakharly Etrap (7 reservoirs); practice geographical coverage – Garavul Settlement (approx. 6,000 people) and Konegumbez Settlement (approx. 1,000 people).
The settlements are located in the river catchment area; deep ground water occurrence; mountain valleys are under high risk of mudflows and floods.
|Practice usage period||
Start date: 01.01.2012
End date: 31.12.2013
|Problem solved through this practice||
Water deficit; settlements and agricultural land under flood and mudflow threat during mudflow risk periods
|Tools used in the practice||
Cascading storage pools (reservoirs) accumulating rain and runoff water
|Description of the practice and its results||
