The Uzbek regions of Karakalpakstan, Khorezm, Bukhara and Kashkadarya have suffered intense droughts in the past 15-20 years. The Chimbay district of the autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan is home to around 110,000 people. The entire area’s economy depends on farming and animal husbandry. No water means no economy. The difficulties of agriculture are of immense economic significance. According to the Labor Ministry, around 27 percent of the working population is employed in the agricultural sector. Almost every second person out of Uzbekistan’s 31-million strong population lives in the countryside.
