UNDP-GEF Kura II: Advancing IWRM Across the Kura River Basin
The UNDP - GEF Kura II Project “Advancing Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) across the Kura river basin through implementation of the transboundary agreed actions and national plans” will be implementing the Strategic Action Program for the Kura River Basin in partnership with the Governments of Georgia and Azerbaijan in partnership with Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection and Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, respectfully.
The Kura River Basin is the main transboundary water system in the geopolitically challenging region of the South Caucasus. The participating countries of Azerbaijan and Georgia have undergone significant political and economic transition and are now developing rapidly across a wide range of water dependent sectors. Together Azerbaijan and Georgia cover 94,760 square km and represent 88% of the Kura basin. The two countries have demonstrated strong commitment to cooperate towards transboundary integrated water resource management.
