Subregional development context

Uzbekistan is a double landlocked country, covering 447,000 square kilometres and sharing borders with five Asian countries: Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. The landscape of Uzbekistan is mostly flat-to-rolling sandy deserts with arable lands covering only one-tenth of its total area. Close to 5 percent of the country is covered by water. The main water supply of Uzbekistan comes through two major rivers: the Amu Darya (with headwaters in Afghanistan and Tajikistan) and the Syr Darya (with headwaters in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan).The resources of these rivers are divided among neighbouring countries.
