Activity update

The project team in Tajikistan is carrying out SEARCH II activities in close collaboration with colleagues from Kazakhstan within the framework of the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC). Ten schools have been selected in the pilot city, Dushanbe. Field activities for the environmental monitoring and health, energy consumption and health comfort assessments are being carried out between January and April 2011, the end of the heating season.

A joint sub-regional meeting for participating managers and experts from both countries was organised by CAREC. This meeting also provided an opportunity for introducing the project equipment. In 2011, school principals in each country were also invited to sign memorandums of understanding.

Both CAREC countries have prepared a manual for teachers, parents and students, which explains the project objectives, methodology, expected results and outcomes. The manual, which also gives an overview of the participating pilot schools, is due to be published in March 2012 in Russian and disseminated in the 20 pilot schools in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.
