Support for the Creation of a Transboundary Water Commission on the Chu-Talas Rivers between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan
This project was a joint initiative of UNECE, UNESCAP and OSCE. It provided assistance to the countries in operationalizing the Agreement on Utilization of the Water Facilities of Interstate Use on the Chu-Talas Rivers. OSCE assisted in drafting documents that defined the status of the commission, its functions, responsibilities and rights, development of procedures and prepared documents for co-funding and the repair, maintenance and operation of multi-purpose water facilities. The cooperation with the water convention and the UNECE has continued and strengthened after the project through the support to the Chu-Talas commission as well as through other projects in the ENVSEC Initiative.
