In his speech, the Chairman of EC IFAS noted that the issue of climate change is a priority on the agenda of EC IFAS during the chairmanship of the Republic of Tajikistan and stressed out that strengthening dialogue between the governments of the countries of the region within the framework of this conference will serve as an important basis for making science-based and climate-sustainable decisions on adaptation and mitigation of the consequences of climate change in the region.
