Central Asia region, including Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan are still in market oriented developing period, having plenty of social, economic, and educational problems.

All Central Asian countries are using the same watershed and having same problem in their social life, but the particular problem is drying of the Aral Sea and water, soil and air pollution connected with them. There are other social, economical and demographic difficulties that  obstacles to the necessary improvement of the region as a whole.
