This initiative assists the Kura-Aras riparian states to
Balancing overuse and conflicting use of water resources in transboundary surface and groundwater basins is seen as the critical issue in the basin and will be a principal focus of attention from the very outset of project related activities.
The project creates synergies with and builds upon a range of initiatives being undertaken by the countries themselves and those of bi-lateral and multi-lateral donors that have given priority to the Basin.
The long-term development/environmental goal of the project is sustainable development of the Kura-Aras River Basin enhanced through ecosystem-based Integrated Water Resource Management approaches. The project objective is to improve the management of the Kura-Aras River Transboundary Basin through the implementation of a sustainable programme of policy, legal and institutional reforms and investment options using the Trans-boundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) and Strategic Action Programme (SAP) process.
