This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:Central Asia is a vast region with significant potencial in human and physical resources. The EU Water Initiative points out that the region has an extremely high level of water consumption compared to other countries. Lack of cooperation and increasing competition among the five Central Asia (Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan ) states has meant they have failed to come up with a viable regional approach to replace the Soviet system of management. There is a need to encourage transborder cooperation in water management and to train water management specialists. A water management curriculum needs to be balanced with solid and professional training in water policy as well as water sciences. The project will bring together experts from EU and Central Asia universities to develop a Master programme that will train students to be fully qualified to face and address all aspects of water problems in the society.
