Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews The disappearance of the Aral Sea in Central Asia is one of the world's greatest man-made disasters. In Kazakhstan, with the help of the World Bank, more than $80million have been spent trying to save the most northern part of the sea but this has only benefited a few hundred people. In this film, we speak to people still living in deserted fishing ports, to see how their lives have changed, and to find out whether they believe that they'll ever see the sea again.

Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

The shrinking of the Aral Sea -  "One of the planet's worst environmental disasters"
 
19:07
The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters". The region's once prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequent serious public health problems. The retreat of the sea has reportedly also caused local climate change, with summers becoming hotter and drier, and winters colder and longer. Put together for the MSc in Environmental Technology.

But in 1950, the Soviets diverted the two rivers that fed it in order to irrigate fields and grow cotton. Little by little, the Aral Sea dried up, ruining thousands of livelihoods. Since the construction of a dam in 2005, the water is slowly beginning to rise, and with it residents' hopes.

The drying up of the Aral Sea is one of the greatest environmental disasters in history. Between 1954 and 1960, the government of the former Soviet Union ordered the construction of a 500 km-long canal that would take a third of the water from the Amu Darya River for an immense area of irrigated land in order to grow cotton in the region. The increasing need for water, due to bad transport management and a lack of foresight and efficiency in land irrigation, meant that more water had to be diverted from rivers flowing into the Aral Sea. As a result, in the eighties, the water reaching the port was as little as 10% of the amount in 1960, and the Aral Sea began to dry up. Consequently, the Aral Sea currently occupies half of its original surface area and its volume has decreased by a quarter, 95% of the nearby reservoirs and wetlands have become deserts and more than 50 lakes from deltas with a surface area of 60,000 hectares have dried up. In terms of climate, this process has eliminated the area’s environmental shock absorbing capacity, making winters and summers harsher, with a subsequent increase in severe droughts. The wind has displaced tons of the saline sand that was originally at the bottom of the dried-up area to a distance of up to 200 km, which has drastically exacerbated the situation. Added to this, fertilisers and pesticides were used indiscriminately, polluting the air and groundwater. The Soviet goal to have saline water at four times the limit recommended by the WHO reduced the groundwater level from 53 to 36 metres, which in turn caused serious problems with the supply of drinking water. The consequences for the health of the population have also been extremely serious. The region has the highest infant mortality rates in all of the former Soviet Union. Chronic bronchitis has increased by 3000% and arthritis by 6000%. In the Uzbek region of Karakalpakstan, anaemia is epidemic among women and 97% of them have haemoglobin levels lower than the 110 grams per litre of blood established by the WHO. Experts point out that this is caused by the consumption of stagnant water containing zinc and magnesium. In the same zone of Uzbekistan, liver cancer increased by 200% from 1981 to 1987, throat cancer by 25% and infant mortality by 20%. Also, cases of hepatitis, respiratory disease, eye-related illness and intestinal infection in the region are seven times higher than in 1960. All of this occurred in a relatively short period of time and the most shocking thing is that it happened with an almost total lack of international awareness. In 2003, satellite pictures from NASA demonstrated the full scale of the disaster and what many scientists had already announced. World opinion is now mobilising and we are beginning to find out the full extent of the current human disaster. In January 1994, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan signed an agreement pledging 1% of their budgets to contribute to the recovery of the sea; however, cooperation among these countries has been minimal. Currently, the northern zone of the Aral Sea is recovering slightly as a result of the construction of the Kokaral dam by the Kazak Government to retain water that would normally flow into Uzbek territorial waters. more information at www.wearewater.org
The Aral Sea story
 
03:07
I did this for a final project in my international relations class. I'm quite interested in Central Asia and the Aral Sea region, so I did this to teach people a little bit about what's happened there in the past 50 years. This story really shows how much of an impact humans can have on the environment in a very short time. It's an important story to tell, but I've found that few people really know what's going on. Imagine if what North America would be like if both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario disappeared. Well, that's the amount of water that the Aral Sea has lost.

The Aral Sea was the world’s fourth largest lake, but also the site of one of its worst man-made disasters. In the 1960s, a massive irrigation project diverted its water elsewhere, causing the lake to shrink and eventually dry up. But in recent years, thanks to large-scale restoration projects, its northern part has sprung back to life. Michal Bardavid visited the town of Aralsk, and found out that as water slowly fills the lake once again, hopes are seeping into the hearts of residents living in this thriving fishing community.

It was also home to bustling fishing ports such as Aralsk. But starting in the 1960s, massive agricultural expansion saw much of the water from the two rivers that feed the lake diverted into thousands of canals to irrigate crops. This caused the Aral Sea to shrink by 70% and split into two. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

World of Change: the Shrinking Aral Sea
 
02:11
The Aral Sea was once the fourth-largest lake in the world. Fed primarily by snowmelt and precipitation flowing down from faraway mountains, it was a temperate oasis in an arid region. But in the 1960s, the Soviet Union diverted two major rivers to irrigate farmland, cutting off the inland sea from its source. The Aral Sea has been slowly disappearing ever since. These images show how the Aral Sea and its surrounding landscape has changed over the past few decades.

► How Soviet pollution destroyed the Aral Sea
 
04:16
In October 1990 Western scientists confirmed the virtual disappearance of the Aral Sea in Soviet Central Asia, formerly the fourth largest inland sea in the world. The loss of sea water was the result of 60 years of intensive agriculture and pollution by the Soviet authorities. It is considered the biggest manmade loss of water in recorded history. The surrounding areas were devastated. Local fisherman watched as the shore gradually receded and fish stocks ran out. Local children fell victim to respiratory illnesses. Professor Denys Brunsden, of London's King's College, was one of the first Western scientists to visit the Aral Sea in 1990. He spoke to Witness about the environmental devastation that he saw.

The Aral sea was a big sea during the first half of the 20th Century. Then irrigation projects to grow cotton shrunk it to what it is now. Water in it became more salty and fish died. Costal cities like Muynak became inland cities. This film shows what the dusty and flat road to what is left of the sea looks like. We are driving on the plateau, but will soon go down to the remainders of the sea. It was still shrinking in 2018 but there is an increasing amount of initiatives to better the situation. To succeed it needs to be a cooperation between several countries.

The Shrinking Aral Sea - Uzbekistan
 
13:24
July 2001 For 50 years Soviet leaders diverted the rivers which feed the sea to irrigate cotton. And when it became clear that the land wasn't suited for the thirsty crop the planners simply increased the use of hazardous chemicals. "It is the world's largest man- made environmental disaster", says Ian Small for Medecins Sans Frontiers in Uzbekistan. The charity usually operates in war zones, but for the first time it has now set up a project devoted solely to an environmental catastrophe. The war here is against tuberculosis, kidney disease and cancers - plaguing the people of the region. Some are caused by toxins, some by the high levels of salt in the water. "Almost nothing grows and it's hard for people -- salt concentrates in their joints and they can't walk for a long time...", says Aigali Tankimalov who sailed the Aral Sea for 29 years. Now the wreck of the vessel he commanded in the navy sits opposite his front door -- and the nearest water is 100 kilometres away. The last of the 20 or so species of fish that lived in the Aral Sea died out in the 1980s, the victims of an environmental catastrophe. Yet despite the dramatic evidence of environmental destruction, Uzbekistan's new leaders continue to grow cotton and scientist fear the damage is irreparable.

The Shrinking Aral Sea - World's Worst Environmental Disasters★★★
 
02:51
The Aral Sea formed about 5.5 million years ago in the area of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Central Asia.

Pirates of a dead Sea. The ecological disaster of The Aral Sea.
 
03:46
Pirates of a Dead Sea Pirates who plunder rusty carcasses and sell to China. The Aral Sea (loosely translated as "Sea of Islands") is a lake between Kazakhstan in the North and Uzbekistan in the South. It was once one of the four largest lakes in the world with an area of 68,000 square km's but has rapidly shrunk since the 1960's after the rivers that fed it were diverted for Soviet irrigation projects and to harness hydro-electric power. The Daily Telegraph in 2010 (2010-04-05) described this shrinking and subsequent consequences as "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters." Thriving fishing communities were destroyed and the local climatic impact of the severe and rapid change has led to long cold winters and hot dry summers. The area is severely polluted from Industrial waste and fertilizer run offs. And if this wasn't enough consider the horrendous consequences of the Cold War Biological Weapons facility on the island of Vorozhdenya where Tuloremia and the Bubonic Plague were produced and where hundreds of tons of Anthrax bacteria were buried in the 1980's. In 1999 live Anthrax bacteria spores that had been buried there, were discovered. Scientists warned of the spread of this lethal bacteria to the mainland by birds and animals. According to the Kazakh Scientific Center for Quarantine and Zoonotic infections, all of the Anthrax burial sites were contaminated.. The Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan announced in 2006 that a consortium of oil and gas companies had signed a production agreement. The Minister said that "The Aral Sea is largely unknown, but it holds a lot of promise." He added ominously: "There is risk of course...." (Itar- Tass News Agency). In the meantime hardy desert grass begins to grow offering food for the newly introduced camels. Also the Pirates of the sand come and eke out a living collecting steel to export to China. КАТЯ ЗООПАРК 's documentary brilliantly captures the life of these inventive scavengers. The documentary is part of SEATOMORROW :vimeo.com/59211963 Director: Katerina Suvorova/Kazakhstan|AlmatyCinematographer -- Eugen Schlegel/Germany|Berlin. The first part of this documentary was titled "Pirates of the Sand" by КАТЯ ЗООПАРК (www.vimeo.com/64726850) and included in this video is the portrayal of the disastrous consequences of man messing with nature. www.telegraph.co.uk/...a/...Aral-sea-ever-return.html www.news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6538219.stm www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/...ex.php?title=Dead_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/Aralsea I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

A Predictable Catastrophe - the history of the Aral Sea, an excerpt
 
12:26
The Aral Sea in Central Asia was once the fourth biggest inland sea in the world. But a mastodon of a vision took form: water from the Sea was to transform the never-ending desert steppe into blooming fields of cotton. But the vision had a serious impact on the surrounding communities. The documentary is part of the international awarded series "Late Lessons from Early Warnings" which explores how we have been able to respond to warnings about the hazards posed by some of the greatest technological innovations of the last century. We have not always been that successful.

Aral Sea Dried Up
 
01:38
The Aral Sea is one of worst environmental disasters on earth. The fourth largest lake on earth (400 miles long) is all gone now. The old Soviet Union dammed up the two rivers flowing into the lake, which prevented the rivers from replenishing the lake water that evaporated in the hot climate. The entire fishing-based economy collapsed, resulting in most of the people moving and the cities dying.

Expedition to Aral sea | Uzbekistan
 
06:55
The Aral sea covered a huge territory in Central Asia lying between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Once, an abundant and waving sea, nowadays is shrinking year by year. Moynoq was formerly a sea port, and now the local people remember it with huge waves and the ships floating there. Once the life of Moynoq habitats was closely connected with the Aral sea. Most people still remember the taste of delicious sea food. The flora and fauna was very rich and unique. Interview. Genjenezer Sobirov. Candidate of biological science Since 1963 the level of the Amudarya flowing to the Aral sea has started to recede. The Syrdarya river also went down as a tributary. Reaching to the 70ies and 80ies of the last century the Aral shrank to 10-13 meters. As a result of drying the sand emerged on the seabed. Consequently, sand and poisonous dust storms once picked by strong winds rose and polluted surrounding areas. Thus, the soil fertility has radically decreased. The harmful and polluted sand even reached the town of Moynoq. This time the film crew sets off to Karakalpakstan, one of the ancient and mysterious regions of Uzbekistan. The group plans to visit Moynoq, the lakes by the sea and to film the flora and fauna of this terrain. Besides, they are going to study some archaeological sites in Ustyurt. Then the crew also wants to go to lake Sudochye and to film a huge flock of flamingo. But they change their mind as it rains from time to time. It is quite difficult to move by the sea shore after the rain. Even the cross-country vehicle may get stuck in wide desert. That’s why the film crew follow Vadim Yagodin’s advice. He is an archaeologist of the Science Academy of Uzbekistan. As an expert, he knows the Aral surroundings, the nature and climate, the flora and fauna very well. So this time he becomes a guide for the group during the expedition to Karakalpakstan. Some of the crew members have never been to Aral sea. So this trip will leave unusual impressions and unforgettable memories. The film group start for Moynoq having these thoughts in mind. The town has left behind and the vast and immense plains appear in the front view. The flora is rich and unique as trees surviving in quite challenging climate grow only around the zone of the Aral sea. On their way the crew sees small bushes and some places with lots of trees. They stop for a while watching the nature – so mysterious and fascinating. But they don’t think to meet a jackal by the road. The wild animal, suddenly appear, sees the strangers quickly disappears. At last the film crew reach the town of Moynoq. Having entered the town they get off the cars by the lake and have a little rest. In fact this lake is not big but it quite alluring. Everyone enjoys seeing the birds flying over the lake after a long and tiring trip. It’s quite delightful to notice the seagulls diving into the water and catching fish. Usually the cameramen try to snap such moments immediately. They don’t want to miss the beautiful scenes. Therefore the cameraman is not bothered and is switching all his talent.The ship standing in the central street of Moynoq reminds that the life of local people was closely connected with the sea. Passing this street one can get to the dried shore of the Aral sea. The group climb up to the hill near the old port. The local call this place “tiger’s tail” for its look. They watch the nature staying on a hill which was once a peninsula. It is hard to believe this very place used to be a port. The port was deserted and abandoned as the sea started shrink away. Now these ships are gathered near Moynoq. The lake surroundings has the original and stunning view. The boats on the shore and the birds flying and swimming in the lake instinctively remind the pictures by Matevoyan and Madgazin displayed in the museum. So, it gets clear why the painters became the admirers of this fascinating and charming landscape. The beautiful nature inspired the painters also makes us fervent. So, the group cameraman tries to capture enchanting scenery of Mother nature.
