From 15–16 October 2024, the conference "Beyond Borders: Central Asia in the Face of Climate Change, Water Scarcity, and Migration Challenges" in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, will provide a unique academic exchange. Contributions can be submitted from now on.

We extend our warm invitation to join us at the forefront of addressing the pressing challenges of climate change, water scarcity, and migration in Central Asia. The conference “Beyond Borders: Central Asia in the Face of Climate Change, Water Scarcity, and Migration Challenges” aims to facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue and knowledge exchange among scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders to enhance understanding of these interlinkages in the region. We are now accepting abstracts on these themes:
