Central Asia is among the most sensitive regions in terms of water resources, which creates many
challenges from social, economic, and geopolitical perspectives. Its geography and uneven distribution of water resources made the governments of all CA countries put the issue of access to water and its management at the top of their agendas. Accelerating processes of economic growth and urbanization experienced by CA countries have increased the pressure on water resources. Therefore, local governments urgently need to strengthen their capacities and develop preventive policies that guarantee access to drinking water and sanitation, at the same time, strengthening institutions and growing potential to improve the management of water resources in the region.
The main goal of the project is to conduct a stocktaking review and mapping of water-related knowledge and capacity-building initiatives by international partners in Central Asian countries.
