Water for Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia

The winter snows of Central Asia store great volumes of water in the region's mountains. In spring and summer, the snows melt, swelling rivers and irrigation canals and creating a paradise for agriculture. This is the story of how Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia has started to rebuild and modernize their irrigated agricultural sector with the help of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
