Population distribution in the Ferghana valley

Year: 2006 Author: Dominique del Pietro and Diana Rizzolio
Given the importance of agriculture for the whole Ferghana basin, natural resources such as land and water have historically been amongst the most important factor in this regions development. The size of the population depending upon these resources is consequently a key political security, and environmental issue. The Ferghana valley is the most populous area in Central Asia. High population densities increase the risk of depletion of natural resources, and thus competition and even conflict for their control.
