Efficient IWRM requires developing the production of information necessary to better guide water resource management decision making in EECCA countries.

The project Capacity building in data administration for assessing transboundary water resources in the countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA)” is developed within the implementation activities of the UNECE “Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes.

The overall aim of the project is to build capacities in data administration within the main national and regional authorities concerned in order to develop information production and sharing of homogenous and consistent information necessary for providing support to transboundary water resources management policies and action, whether at national and local levels, or for regional assessments.

The project is implemented by International Office for Water (IOWater). It will technically coordinate the activities financed by the French Global Environment Facility (FFEM).

The project includes the component on making a diagnostic of the data management situation in the 2 pilot areas: Dniestr basin and Aral Sea basins. Based on an analysis of the situation it is planned to develop action plan in collaboration with the national, regional and international partners, define priorities for further development and contribute to its implementation.

All the activities are planned to be carried out over a 18-month period between November 2010 and April 2011.
