Uzbekistan, topographic map

Year: 2005
From collection: Topographic maps
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Uzbekistan is located in Central Asia, north of Afghanistan, comprising of 447,400 sq km. It has a population of 26,851,195 (2005). Major environmental concerns are: shrinkage of the Aral Sea is resulting in growing concentrations of chemical pesticides and natural salts; these substances are then blown from the increasingly exposed lake bed and contribute to desertification; water pollution from industrial wastes and the heavy use of fertilizers and pesticides is the cause of many human health disorders; increasing soil salination; soil contamination from buried nuclear processing and agricultural chemicals, including DDT.
