Finland’s Water Management Programme in Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan

Description

The overall objective of the intervention is to enhance water security in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan and the related region through equitable and integrated management of water resources. The purpose is to reduce water-related risks by supporting Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan to manage their national and international water resources in a balanced, equitable and integrated manner; and to promote rights-based approach to water use and water management by supporting the capacities of both the ‘duty bearers’ (government authorities) and the ‘rights holders’ (citizens). The programme covers years 2014-2017 and its budget is 8 million euros. It is administered by the Finnish Environment Institute SYKE for enhancing cooperation and coordination within the state administration, and for improving the quality of the programme by involving wider range of expertise from this specialised institute.
