This paper examines the impacts of different irrigation scenarios on Uzbekistan's cotton sector and world cotton trade. The immediate challenges for this region's water resource management represent a test case for the long-run challenges associated with global climate change. With an eye towards this eventuality, this paper describes a variety of water policy scenarios relevant to Central Asia's agriculture and simulates their impacts on cotton markets in this region and around the world.
