National Workshop “Implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Kyrgyzstan”

16 December 2010, Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan)

National Workshop “Implementation of   Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Kyrgyzstan”

Among the participants of the seminar were representatives of the various water management related institutions and agencies in Kyrgyzstan.

Currently, due to various factors the process of water sector modernization in Kyrgyzstan has slowed down. In the meantime, the consequences of climate change and aggravating water deficit worldwide urge the authorities to further upgrade management schemes for one of the most valuable natural resources in the country - water. One way to achieve a more rational and careful use of water is a large-scale adoption of integrated management principles. These issues were discussed during the national workshop “Implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Kyrgyzstan” which was held on December 16, 2010 in Bishkek. It was organized within the framework of the EU/UNDP project “Promoting IWRM and Fostering Transboundary Dialogue in Central Asia” with support of the EU, UNDP, and State Committee of Water Resources and Irrigation of the Kyrgyz Republic.

The participants of the event, i.e. management of the Water and Melioration State Committee of the Kyrgyz Republic, its regional institutions, NGOs, representatives of EU, UNDP, Helvetas, highly appreciated the open and fruitful discussions between representatives of state authorities, nongovernmental organizations, and international organizations which took place during the workshop. It is expected that in 2011 similar workshops on transboundary water use, international water law, and other relevant problems of water resources management will be organized in the framework of the project.
