Area of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
The purpose of this project is to provide elven water engineering professionals or policy makers from up to seven Central Asian countries to attend a Water Symposium put on by UNESCO-IHE in Holland.
These countries face potentially catastrophic water issues in the region, both from the perspective of competing economically for limited water resources as well as the high risks associated with an earthen dam on the river in an earthquake zone. This symposium will bring key people together to discuss the issues, learn about alternatives and discuss possible solutions to the problems in the region.
In addition, potential donors will be joining the symposium to understand the issues facing the region and possible solutions. They will be selected based on the possibility that they will see linkages to their own organizations.
This project is "Paid". This means the funds have been received and the project is being implemented.
Project listed for the 2016-17 Rotary Year.
The TRF Grant application number is #1638507.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
