From the next academic year all major universities of Kazakhstan will begin preparing students for the new discipline. It was stated by the Dean of the Faculty of Geography and Nature Management at KazNU, vice president of the Kazakh Geographic Society, Professor Vladimir Salnikov at a roundtable on the theme: "Promoting knowledge among the population for the protection and rational use of water resources in the Republic of Kazakhstan”. It should be noted that these round tables under the auspices of the Kazakh Society for Nature Conservation (COOP) and with financial support of Coca Cola during the year took place in the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, "Nazarbayev University", universities in Oral, Petropavl, Aktobe, Semei, etc.
In the course of their work environment and the public, scientists raised the issue of training for the study and protection of water resources, as already now more than half of the country is prone to desertification. The current situation of water scarcity will be affected by anomalous warming in Kazakhstan that will put in front of our agrarian state the question of food security.
This is the conclusion the students get themselves: geographers, ecologists and biologists – during the educational field practice studies conducted by KazNU.
