Project Description

The Water Resources Management Training Project in the Aral Sea Basin started on March 31, 2000. The goal of this five year project is to promote good governance and environmental sustainability in the Aral Sea Basin through the development of a water resources training network and long-term international cooperation at policy, management and operations levels.
This project envisions a combination of study tours, seminars, courses and train-the-trainer programs aimed to increase the capacity of water management professional at all levels from the grassroots, through management and up to policy levels. There will be a strong emphasis on international cooperation, conflict resolution and integrated resources management. While working to establish a sustainable training center in Tashkent, the project will also place an emphasis on disseminating the training materials and experience throughout Central Asia to create a truly regional project and establish branches of the Training Center in all Central Asian States to develop the regional water management training network.

Thus, the main objectives of this project is to:
  • Increase the capacity of Interstate Commission for Water Coordination (ICWC) to deliver water management training programs.
  • Promote water management concepts through study tours, seminars, and workshops.
  • Encourage policy and institutional reforms that support improvements to the current water management practices and environmental sustainability.
  • Arrangethe floor for exchange of opinions between participants from the five Central Asian States.
  • Receive the "return flow" from our actions.
The establishment of the ICWC Training Center was the first step required in order to achieve these project objectives.The project will consist of the following seven main activities that will be carried out over the course of five years.
