EU to Share Experience with Central Asia on Water Quality Management

Experts of the European Union have shared their experience in water quality management with their colleagues from Central Asia.

More than 200 specialists took part in the seminar on rational use of water resources and sustainable development in the region.

The main goal of training is to introduce the region’s experts to advanced technologies which will improve water quality as well as its efficient and rational use. This will both save valuable water resource and prevent water pollution. As a result, the experts of the European Union are confident that this will give impetus to development of the entire region.

According to Johannes Stenbek Madsen, Director of Cooperation Section of EU Delegation in Kazakhstan, the training is a part of the enhanced cooperation between the EU and five Central Asian countries on environment, water and climate change.

“We hope that this training will contribute to a process of basically improving environmental regulations in Central Asia and we have great expectations to the continuation of cooperation because the great investment needs that we are identifying in Central Asia concern both solid waste management and improvement of water and air quality,” he said.
