United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
USAID’s assistance to IFAS supports the elaboration of a long-term comprehensive regional water resources management agreement by providing thorough analysis of the economic and welfare ramifications of optimum water-resource management in the Aral Sea basin. A thorough and credible analysis that catalogues and quantifies the potential benefits that the countries individually, and the region as a whole, stand to reap will give an opportunity to conclude a viable and sustainable agreement and also facilitate dialogue on the details of any such arrangement by providing the countries with a basis to conduct negotiations. USAID’s grant will also support research of the risks the region faces with respect to the impact on the region’s water resources of global climate change.
The grant assistance of USAID provides support to the IFAS activities, which is to facilitate the elaboration and implementation of sustainable modalities for cooperation and mutually acceptable mechanism on integrated use of water resources and environmental protection of Central Asia taking account interests of all states of the Region, which is set in the Joint Statement of Heads of states-founders of IFAS. This grant program represents USAID’s contribution to the Third Aral Sea Basin Program (ASBP-3).
