Being far from the Seas Uzbekistan has very unevenly shared water resources in its territory. Some of its regions have huge water resources and some have serious shortage of water. The drought of the Aral Sea is seriously accelerating the water issues in the country. This ecological disaster has tremendously changed the nature of Uzbekistan and Central Asia. The 4th biggest lake of the planet – the Aral Sea has lost nearly 90% of its water.
Due to little country of rain and snows the last years the water of small rivers and streams are evaporating without reaching the lakes. And all of these lakes which are receiving no or few water are about to be indistinguishable from the outer land with no water. In most of the lakes of Northern Uzbekistan the level of salinity is incredibly increasing.
The government of Uzbekistan is gradually minimizing the hectares of cotton fields which means that from year to year Uzbekistan's lakes will have more water of raining flowing in. Which means that, visitors of Uzbekistan will ling time be able to admire the fantastic colors of Sunrise and Sunset by the lakes.
