Addressing Climate Change Risks to Farming Systems in Turkmenistan at National and Community LevelThe project aims at strengthening water management practices at both local and national levels in response to climate change-induced water scarcity risks that are increasingly affecting farming systems in Turkmenistan. It promotes enhancing local capacities for adapting water management to the changing climate and builds on successes and lessons learned of a previously implemented initiative on land management.
Improving Energy Efficiency in the Residential Building Sector of TurkmenistanThe project supports reducing greenhouse gas emissions by improving energy management and reducing energy consumption in the residential sector in Turkmenistan. In this project, UNDP partners with the State Corporation “Turkmengaz” with the financial support from the GEF to strengthen incentives and capacity to build highly energy-efficient buildings and mainstream energy efficient measures into state construction and housing policies and programmes so that these measures can be replicated in prototype buildings.
Ensuring universal access to high-quality diagnosis and treatment of drug resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) in TurkmenistanTurkmenistan is one of 18 high priority countries of the WHO European Region’s Plan to Stop TB, 2007–2015. According to National TB Program (NTP) data, in 2014, 2’854 TB cases were notified (excluding penitentiary system).
