About the Study Visit on River Basin Management and Institutions:
The Government of Tajikistan (GoT) is very active at international and national level in addressing water management. At the national level the GoT has been making efforts in reforming its water sector. The main principle of the reform is moving the water management from administrative boundaries to hydrological basins, and this significant change will require setting up the river basin management institutions (River Basin Organizations and River Basin Councils) in line with IWRM principle.
The Study Visit on River Basin Management and Institutions aims at explaining theory, international practice and lessons learnt on the river basin management to a delegation from Tajikistan. The delegation will be composed of 16 water reform leaders from the Syrdarya Basin and Zervshan Sub-Basin in Tajikistan that visit Switzerland to build their common understanding on the reform principles such as IWRM and river basin management.
