The "Central Asia Water Sector Coordination Initiative (CAWSCI)" is aimed at facilitating a shared vision and aligned approaches among water sector partners. As such, this document is "a living document", reflecting work in progress and will be continuously updated by the Participating Partners. Certain elements of it are under development or revision, and will change in line with emerging issues, concrete processes, and activities.
All interested organizations are warmly welcome to actively participate in this process.

The goal of the Central Asia Water Sector Coordination Initiative is to map activities of the various international and regional partners involved in the water sector in Central Asia. The aim is to support information exchange and thus facilitate coordination amongst partners, projects and processes, by continuously identifying and describing:

Towards a Common Framework for Addressing Water Issues
In order to promote better alignment of (complementary) action in the water sector in Central Asia, the intended impact of the CAWSCI is to promote - and support - the creation of synergies amongst the various actors and their interventions, and to help avoid overlap or duplication through better coordination amongst participating partners of this initiative.

The long-term vision is a synchronized water sector with complementary interventions ultimately adding value for the beneficiary countries and populations, with jointly defined scopes, work divisions, and roles and responsibilities among the international and regional actors, as well as concrete collaboration in selected projects, processes or initiatives.
