Implementation of the Basin Management Principle in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. European Union Water Initiative National Policy Dialogues Progress Report 2016

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of implementation of the river basin planning principle in the countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. It is a follow-up to a benchmarking study by UNECE and OECD from early 2014, where the overall status with regard to implementation of the IWRM principles was described. With just two years passed since the previous study, river basin management has been chosen specifically for this follow-up report, as it is one of the key principles of IWRM.
The report covers the following 11 countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The findings of the report are mainly based on responses to a questionnaire by water and environmental experts in these countries. The publication was compiled by Peep Mardiste and Vahagn Tonoyan.
