This resource is currently being developed through collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

Under the Swiss Cooperation Strategy with Central Asia for 2012-2015 disaster risk reduction will focus on improved watershed management and adaptation to changing climate factors. The safety, livelihoods and infrastructure of communities living along rivers will be improved through an integral view on the watershed and a holistic approach to disaster risk management. Geographically the DRR component concentrates on Tajikistan and cross-border watersheds in the Fergana Valley. With a priority on Tajikistan, Switzerland, jointly with other partners, will actively support the inclusion of disaster risk management and the sustainable use of natural resources into national reforms by reinforcing the relevant donor coordination structure and the planned platforms for disaster risk reduction.

SDC will apply "Integrated Watershed Management" in selected project areas of the Central Asian region, and try to ensure synergies between its regional water programme for irrigation (with a geographical focus on the Fergana Valley) and the DRR programme.
