Question 5: To which Aral Sea basin development scenarios attention should be paid?
Answer: The model enables constructing and assessing alternative scenarios of water and energy resources management in the basin, as a whole, and in individual national provinces (planning zones), taking into account probable socio-economic development scenarios, climate change scenarios, and environmental needs (water use by ecosystems, inflow to the Aral Sea). The main objective is to search optimistic regional scenarios that ensure balance of national country interests and nature capacities, prevent damage, identify lost opportunities in hydropower, irrigated agriculture, etc., simultaneously guaranteeing meeting of environmental requirements. Studies of future situation in the basin by national preference scenarios is based on assessment of risks from increased water use (including Afghanistan’s demand), climate changes (reduced water availability and heightened flow fluctuations), construction of new HEPS oriented to energy regimes and energy export outside the basin, etc.
