BISHKEK — Effective management of Central Asia’s water and energy complex in the Aral Sea basin becomes increasingly important every year. Coordinated approach could ease natural, economic, technical and social uncertainties in ensuring sustainable water use and reliable energy supplies. The Eurasian Development Bank’s (EDB) new report, Regulation of the Water and Energy Complex of Central Asia, scrutinises historical data and international experience to suggest five institutional solutions that would benefit all countries of the region. In particular, the report proposes to establish the project consortium to promote faster construction and more efficient operation of major hydro-electric objects and validates a model for a financial operator’s engagement in the regulation of Central Asia’s water and energy complex.
