Better informed people make better decisions! This is the motto of the website. There is a lot of data and knowledge available about transboundary water management in Central Asia. Much of it is not easily available to all stakeholders and the general public. We like to contribute towards better networking and information exchange of stakeholders as well as to foster the discussion about water as a common good.
Our Mission: Provide reliable and credible information and knowledge about transboundary water management in Central Asia to all stakeholders and the interested public.
Vision: In the long run we like to contribute to more transparency in water management in Central Asia in order to come to long lasting agreements about the most efficient water allocation across borders. We also like to create, store, process knowledge and information and become a platform for knowledge exchange about water in Central Asia.
The book: The website started with the book: From the glaciers to the Aral Sea - Water Unites. It is also our conviction that Water in Central Asia should not divide the countries but rather unite them.To the book

The Central Asia Water & Energy Data Portal is available in English and Russian language and covers the five countries of Central Asia including Afghanistan. The data portal includes many new high-quality datasets available from a number of institutions (e.g. UN agencies, NASA, NOAA, CIESIN, IRI, The World Bank, etc.). It contains datasets on various topics, such as: Environment, Social, Economic, Climate, Water, and Disaster. The data portal also contains so-called story maps, which present World Bank projects in Central Asia by making use of interactive maps. If you would like to try new ways of presenting the Central Asia development situation, environmental resources and risks, this portal is for you.

The United Nations is marking its 75th anniversary at a time of great challenge, including the worst global health crisis in its history. Will it bring the world closer together? Or will it lead to greater divides and mistrust? Your views can make a difference.
For informed decision-making in Land and Water Resources Management we want to present a free online tool for land and water management WUEMoCA from CAWa.
WUEMoCA is an operational scientific webmapping tool for the regional monitoring of land and water use efficiency in the irrigated croplands of the transboundary Aral Sea Basin that is shared by Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan. Satellite data on land use, crop production and water consumption are integrated with hydrological and economic information to provide of a set indicators. The tool is useful for large-scale decisions on water distribution or land use, and may be seen as demonstrator for numerous applications in practice, that require independent area-wide spatial information.
