Strategic partnership with Central Asia has high importance for Germany. In June 2007, the new partnership strategy between the European Union and Central Asia was initiated by the Government of Germany. A wide range of projects in the field of education, sustainable economic development, legal and juridical reforms, environmental and economic change is aimed to support the development of Central Asia through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Currently, there are two major regional programs in the Aral Sea Basin which are implemented by GIZ GmbH: “Transboundary water resources management in Central Asia" and "Enhancing Economic and Environmental Welfare in the Aral Sea Region» (EEWA).
The Enhancing Economic and Environmental Welfare in the Aral Sea Region (EEWA) programme, launched in 2009, aims to support efforts in the delta regions of the Amudarya and Syrdarya rivers geared towards developing opportunities amid dwindling resources. This Regional Program was developed by GIZ GmbH. In 2010, the Program has become a partner for the EC IFAS on the Third Aral Sea Basin Program. The EEWA Program is performing in collaboration with the Initiative of the Central Asian countries for Land Management (CACILM) and the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC).
