OverviewThe EastWest Institute is proud to partner with the International Water Association (IWA) as well as the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to engage in discussion about the current dilemmas in the Amu Darya Basin region. This three-day workshop will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Istanbul-Moda in Istanbul, Turkey, and will run from July 15-17, 2014. Program OverviewThe event will support participants in gaining a better understanding of how to combine and apply best practices on water-food-energy nexus approaches for solutions in river basins, and will encourage them to apply these practices in such regions. The discussion will also focus on exploring new avenues for advancing hydro-diplomacy in Central Asia, in light of the recent political transition in Afghanistan. Both public and private sector actors will bring their sectoral expertise and regional influences to the table to find solutions to unresolved agricultural, water and energy challenges.
