South Caucasus Cooperative River Monitoring
This project was lauched by NATO's Science for Peace sub-programme, in cooperation with the OSCE. It aimed to establish a social and technical infrastructure that could monitor the water quality and quantity of transboundary rivers and ease data-sharing between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Water supply and pollution problems affect the Kura and Araks rivers in the region, which is heavily reliant on river resources for social and economic development. The project enhanced technical capabilities in water sampling and monitoring and database management, established a joint database and a social framework to support joint watershed management and provided decision makers with information on water contaminants.
