Industrial AS

The industrial adaptation strategy is composed of the measures for enhancing hydropower generation, i.e. measure I1 (build new reservoirs) would involve constructing three more new dams and hydropower plants. Together with measure I2 (generating more hydropower in winter), this would enable a significant increase in hydropower production as compared to business as usual. The latter in combination with measure E1 (develop dykes and protection) and less developed crop production would make the industrial adaptation strategy favourable for the environment in terms of improving water quality and decreasing the risk of radioactive contamination. However, in terms of increasing the outflow to the Aral Sea, this strategy is the least effective compared to other adaptation strategies. Food security enhancing measures of this strategy involve only measures of low costs such as change cropping pattern (F3) and revive cattle-raising (F7).
