Enhanced regional cooperation on Environment, Climate Change and Water

Water Quality Management training in Tashkent

The EU member states are obliged and intensively implement measures to prevent pollution of water sources. The set of EU Directives (Water Framework Directive, Drinking Water Directive, Urban Waste Water Directive, Bathing Water Directive, and several others related to them) stipulate binding quality targets for drinking water and protecting human health from adverse effects of any contamination, as well as protecting the environment. Uzbek national experts, representatives of ministries and regional administrations were trained and learned from the European Union (EU) experience on water quality management as part of the EU’s tailor-made support to Central Asia (CA) on environmental project preparation. The training is organised by the EU-funded project WECOOP.
