Présentation
The project plans to purchase 12 sets of laser planners for the regions of Karakalpakstan : 2 set in each of the three areas where the UN Program works to ensure the livelihoods of people affected by the crisis of the Aral Sea - Shumanay, Muinak and Kanlikol, and 6 sets - for other areas of Karakalpakstan - Ellikkala, Amudarya, Turtkul, Chimbay. Khodjeyli and Kegeyli, one will be installed in every district.
