1) What kinds of climate-related information and knowledge do stakeholders in Central Asia need,
2) How would the stakeholders like to receive and use climate-related information?

Institutional arrangements and key stakeholders are determined as climate change information recepients in the countries. It also provides SWOT analysis, identifying the Capacity Gaps and Priority Needs on the climate related knowledge products based on the interview conducted with representatives of different sectors in four countries of Central Asia.
