CAWa scientists in close cooperation with Central Asian partner organizations developed several tools, all aiming at the improvement of transboundary water management.

These tools cover a broad range of water related applications, such as hydro-meteorological observations in high mountain regions, radar altimetry based monitoring of reservoir levels, remote sensing

based assessments of land use and snow cover and user friendly algorithms for seasonal precipitation and runoff forecasts. The flyer gives an overview of CAWa tools. Interested users are welcome!
