The first ASBP was initiated in 1993 and in January 1994, the Program was approved by the Heads of Central Asian States.


In June 1994, Paris hosted a meeting of donors to discuss the draft, which was called a “Program of Actions”. At this meeting, donors made commitments of more than USD$400 million to finance this Program.


The main goals of the Program included:


(i) stabilizing the environment in the Aral Sea basin

(ii) restoring the disaster zone around the Sea

(iii) improving management of transboundary waters in the basin

(iv) developing the capacity of the regional organizations to plan and implement the Program


The Program was to provide assistance to the Basin countries to develop cooperation and establish sustainable regional relations to overcome the crisis. The Program was also to develop proposals to improve the living conditions of the people in Central Asia.
