Visit of Andree Poulin, Senior Program Officer for Central Asia and Caucasus Program CIDA to the ICWC Training Centre October 16, 2003, Tashkent, Uzbekistan
The Training Centre staff delivered a brief introduction in the form of Power Point Presentation on the past activities of the Centre and its future plans. This also included a database on the Centre's participants (trainees) and an updated website. Dr Umarov P., Director of the Training Centre and Deputy Director of the SIC ICWC, talked about training dissemination strategy for the Aral Sea Basin and the branches of the Training Centre in Urgench, Uzbekistan, and Osh, Kyrgyzstan, as well as future plans for opening additional branches in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, and Kyzyl-Orda, Kazakhstan. Dr. Stulina, a Senior Research Fellow of the SANIIRI, and a leading expert in "Climate Change Project" also funded by CIDA, provided an update on project activities and results obtained to date. Ms Poulin was also acquainted with training materials and handouts as well as follow-up reporting on training workshops. The Training Centre's Library was presented at the end of her visit.

Ms. Poulin raised the following questions and paid a particular interest to the following issues:
  • Training Centre's becoming self-sufficient after the CIDA funding ends in 2005;
  • Criteria for participants' selection;
  • Participation of women in the training activities;
  • Impacts of the workshop minutes and recommendations in improving region-wide water management and the mechanism for their dissemination, etc.
On the first item, she recommended that the Training Centre should continue delivering the water and related training activities in the long run, focus rather on water related courses than commercial courses. In order to avoid interruptions of the training workshops after the funding will end, she suggested to consider starting negotiations with and proposing to the other international organizations such as the UN system organizations and its specialized agencies, international financial institutions and international professional institutions as well as donor countries to provide financial assistance for the Training Centre so that it continues to provide quality training and serve as a Place of Excellency to achieve environmentally sustainable water management in the Aral Sea Basin.
