On March 16, the Ministry of Investment, Industry and Trade hosted a ceremony of signing an agreement on further support for the activities of the UN multi-partner trust fund for human security for the Aral Sea region in Uzbekistan.

The ceremony was attended by the Deputy Minister of Investment, Industry and Trade Sarvar Khamidov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Germany to Uzbekistan Tilo Klinner and the UN Resident Coordinator in Uzbekistan Consuelo Vidal.

The document provides for the allocation of 700 thousand dollars of the German government to the trust fund for the Aral Sea region. The funds will be contributed to targeted support to reduce the negative impact of the difficult environmental situation on the inhabitants of the region.

The German Ambassador emphasized that achievements in this priority area will benefit not only the citizens of Uzbekistan, but also the population of other Central Asian countries, and will have a positive impact on minimizing the consequences of the Aral Sea tragedy on a global scale.

In total, within the priority areas of the trust fund, more than $16 million was mobilized, 7 projects were implemented in Beruni, Takhtakupyr, Bozatau, Kungrad and Muynak districts of Karakalpakstan and the city of Nukus.
