COUNTRY PROFILE - UZBEKISTAN


Uzbekistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia, with a total area of 447 400 km2. It is bordered in the west by Kazakhstan, in the northeast by the Aral Sea, in the north by Kazakhstan, in the east by Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and in the south by Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. The country gained its independence from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in August 1991. For administrative purposes, the country is divided into 12 provinces (vilayats) Andijan, Bukhara, Fergana, Jizzakh, Kashkadarya, Khorezm, Namangan, Navoiy, Samarkand, Sirdaryo, Surkhandarya and Tashkent (which includes the capital city of Tashkent), plus one autonomous republic: Karakalpakstan in the far west near the Aral Sea.

Physiographically the country can be divided into three zones:

  • the desert (Kyzylkum), steppe and semi-arid region covering 60 percent of the country, mainly the central and western parts;
  • the fertile valleys (including the Fergana valley) that skirt the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers;
  • the mountainous areas in the east with peaks of about 4 500 m above sea level (Tien Shan and Gissaro-Alay mountain ranges).

In 2009, the cultivated area was an estimated 4.65 million ha, of which 92.5 percent was under temporary crops and 7.5 percent under permanent. Only 18 percent of the cultivable area, an estimated 25.4 million ha, is cultivated because of the water shortage.
