Joint Bodies

The Chu-Talas Commission was established in 2006 to facilitate the implementation of the Agreement of 2000.

Major challenges and perspectives for cooperation

It is important to clearly define the status and funding mechanism for the secretariat of the Chu-Talas Commission, in particular to clarify the issue of financing from the national budgets. The need to expand the functions of the Commission is also being discussed. There is a need for a wider and more effective participation in the work of the Commission of other authorities than water management authorities. Proposals to develop mechanisms for public participation (possibly, through a Chu-Talas Basin Council) are discussed.
