Mustakim Akhmedov Mustakim Akhmedov from Tajikistan is recently visiting the Department of Remote Sensing in Würzburg. He is doing his MSc on Integrated Water Resource Management at the Kazakh-German University (DKU, see link) in Almaty, Kazakhstan, under initiative of German Ministry of Foreign Affairs to support Central Asian region to improve water resource management and cooperation on transboundary river basins. He arrived in Wurzburg on 8th of April 2015 to learn GIS technology and remote sensing and will work there until end of May 2015. The objective of his visit is to foster his skills in GIS and remote sensing for further applying it in the practice in his home country Tajikistan. His specific topic of research is social aspects of water management in rural areas of Tajikistan. He plans to analyze water distribution and water demand in rural areas of Zerafshan Valley of Tajikistan, and identify irrigation efficiency. He is closely cooperating and supporting the ongoing resrach at the Department of Remote Sensing, Würzburg in the context of the CAWa (see link) and LaVaCCA (see link) projects, which both deal with land and water ressources in Central Asia.
