Promotion of Interstate Water Management Cooperation between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan on Syr Darya River Tributaries in the Ferghana Valley

Project completed

The objective of the proposed project is to strengthen transboundary water resources management in the Ferghana Valley between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, to increase water and food security, reduce water-related disaster risks, and improve livelihoods. This will be reached by supporting participatory river basin planning, establishing joint river basin commissions, strengthening data and disaster risk management, and in the longer term through implementing jointly agreed investments in both traditional and natural infrastructure.
