Description

Against the background of the work of ENVSEC initiative in Central Asia and its extensive relations with the Governments of the region, it is proposed to undertake a detailed assessment of water management and quality situation in the upper Amu-Darya river basin with a particular focus on the environment and security implications of projected developments as well as on identifying opportunities to strengthen basin-wide cooperation around common issues.

The project will strive to achieve the following objectives*:

  • strengthen understanding of environment-security risks and linkages in the Amu- Darya basin among target groups, policy-makers and the population;
  • improve cooperation on specific environment-security issues among states of the basin
  • Initiate remediation and other activities to address priority sources of tension and risk
