The guide provides examples of the use of low-cost, easily implemented and effective practices on energy and water conservation, which have been tested and have proven themselves around the world.

Recommended practical approaches can be successfully applied at the level of farms, households, schools and colleges making a positive contribution to improving their climate resilience, as well as reducing the carbon footprint. For each type of technology, a list of necessary materials is indicated which facilitates the process of making equipment and accelerates the possibility of putting it into practice. The handbook was prepared within the framework of the joint project of the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, UNDP and the Adaptation Fund "Developing climate resilience of farming communities in the drought prone parts of Uzbekistan".
