The UNDP-GEF Kura II IWRM Academy will be offering the first training in Azerbaijan on Environmental Flow Methodologies and Application. This two day training on 7-8 December 2018 will be led by out international expert, Eng. Ahmed Abou Elseoud, in staged environmental flow applications. This begins with the simplest hydrological methods and will advance through expert judgement to the wholistic approach, largely viewed as international best practices. Application of Environment Flows in Azerbaijan is a critically important issue that influences how water users can best share water resources to benefit all users, while also protecting the river environment. As a downstream country, dependent on river flow for environmental sustainability, and development, these issues will be incorporated into this training.
