A Chat in the Yurt, discussing Central Asia and Europe – Episode VII Climate Change


Episode VII Climate change 

In this seventh episode, hosts Yelena Kilina (EUCAM communications associate) and Rashid Gabdulhakov (assistant professor at the Centre for Media and Journalism Studies, University of Groningen, The Netherlands) are joined by EUCAM research fellow Khudonazar Imomyorbekov who is currently pursuing a MA in Innovation, Human Development and Sustainability at the University of Geneva. This chat focusses on the impact of climate change on Central Asia with a particular focus on Tajikistan’s mountains region of Gorno-Badakhshan (GBAO). Khudonazar explains what risks the region’s population runs in terms of landslides, and how melting glaciers impact people’s livelihood, for instance in agriculture.


Step into our Yurt and join us for a monthly conversation on Europe-Central Asia developments. In this series of podcasts, we welcome guests from both regions to discuss exciting new research and the latest developments in Europe and Central Asia. Guests range from academics to policymakers and from journalists to civil society activists. What is happening in Europe that Central Asians should know about? What events are unfolding in Central Asia that Europeans should understand? Together, we discuss society trends, political developments, and economic turns while assessing the past and looking ahead to what may unfold.
