Methods for downscaling and regionalization of GCM outputs should be improved, crop modeling of irrigated crop production in Central Asia should be combined combined with hydrological/climatic hydrological/climatic estimates of snowfall and snowmelt in the mountains and the impact of climate change, the number of crops considered in the investigation should be increased to assess CC impact on crop production systems, the point level biophysical results should be up-scaling to the province/national level to make use for assessment of CC impact on livelihoods and the Impact of climate change on crop affection by diseases, pests and weeds should be assessed.
