Climate Change Documentary Series Launched
Karachi, Pakistan and Geneva, Switzerland 14/10/2020 - In a bid to spotlight the dire consequences of climate change in Central and South Asia, the Aga Khan University, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat and the University of Central Asia launched a film series focusing on the catastrophic impact of the rapid melting of the world’s largest repository of ice outside the polar regions. Echoing the call to action of the #EarthshotPrize, Voices from the Roof of the World (VRW) will help local filmmakers produce impactful documentaries about the consequences of global warming for the wildlife and the 240 million people living among the world’s highest mountains and the almost two billion people dependent on the great rivers that all begin here. www.aku.edu/vrw

Adapting to Distance Learning in the Age of COVID-19
The University of Central Asia’s Education Improvement Programme (EIP) was quick to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic as schools closed and distance learning became a necessity. On short notice teachers had to switch from using textbooks to online platforms and social media to facilitate learning. This meant identifying, adapting, and developing teaching and learning material for online and offline use. The new material prepared by EIP was sent directly to the teachers of the sixty public schools that the University of Central Asia (UCA) supports in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan.
