Welcome to the CAWa project

Regional Research Network “Water in Central Asia” (CAWa)

Central Asia faces big water-related challenges, among them water scarcity, degrading water quality and inefficient water use. Climate change may even aggravate the situation. These challenges can be met only in a joint effort of all Central Asian states. The CAWa project intends to contribute to a sound scientific and a reliable regional data basis for the development of sustainable water management strategies in Central Asia.
