CAWECOOP Newsletter: the latest development in water sector in Central Asia

The “Promotion dialogue for conflict prevention related to water nexus in Central Asia. Central Asia Water Nexus Cooperation (CAWECOOP)” project is implemented by the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia (CAREC) in five countries of Central Asian Region: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in the framework of EU supported initiatives on water energy nexus in Central Asia. Within the period from December, 2015 to June, 2017 the project aims to stimulate transboundary trust and high-level, trans-national political involvement in the Central Asia water nexus.

This project is funded from the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (ICSP). ICSP came into force as of 11 March 2014. The ICSP has been established to provide, for the period from 2014 to 2020, for direct support for the European Union's external policies by increasing the efficiency and coherence of the Union's actions in the areas of crisis response, conflict prevention, peace building and crisis preparedness, and in addressing global and trans-regional threats.

The intervention of the project will support stability and peace in the region via improved interstate, transboundary cooperation on environment, water , and energy. Moreover, improved technical and governance aspects of the water management, Central Asian countries will be better prepared to the natural disasters such as flooding, droughts and consequences of climate change. 

CAWECOOP project team has prepared the first edition of the quarterly project newsletter, where one can find the information on the latest development in water sector in Central Asia, progress in implementation of CAWECOOP project, as well as the overview and recommendations given by CAWECOOP team to EU special representative for Central Asia – Mr. Peter Burian.
