CAWa experts support transboundary river basin authorities

Between October 2012 and March 2013, CAWa experts from the University of Wuerzburg supported initial steps towards the establishment of transboundary river basin authorities envisaged in the Isfara river basin, shared by Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, and the Murghab-Tedjen river basin, shared by Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. In the frame of the Transboundary Water Management in Central Asia Programme (TWMCA) implemented by the “Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit” (GIZ) as part of the “Berlin Process”, the researchers assisted in the generation of detailed land use maps, as well as the assessment of climate change impact and natural hazards.
