Central Asia is commonly used to identify the following republics: Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan.
The Central Asian climate is quite arid. The main portion of the territory is occupied by deserts. The most precipitation is in the mountains regions of Central Asia. Mountain rivers are the main irrigate source for the territories of Central Asia (Fergana valley, Hungry Steppe, Kara-Kum channel). Unfortunately, simultaneously the large usage of water for irrigation in the past era has led to the diminishing of the Aral Sea.
The main rivers of Central Asia are the Amudarya and the Sirdarya that flow to the Aral Sea, and the Ili river that flows to Balkhash.
