Central Asia Energy-Water Development Program : Annual Report 2012 (English)

The Central Asian countries are endowed with significant energy and water resources. However, the distribution of these resources is highly skewed across individual countries, creating multiple challenges for resource management; for example, generating hydropower in upstream countries addresses energy deficits in the winter but compromises water available for irrigation in the summer growing months even while almost 50 percent of irrigated lands are affected by salinization and waterlogging. The consequences of doing nothing are considerable: 2 million households experience winter heat and power shortages; some $1.5 billion in cost savings are lost to a 90 percent reduction in energy trade within Central Asia since 1990; and 1 percent in GDP is lost per year from weather-related disasters in Tajikistan and Kyrgyz Republic. Simply put, energy-water linkages are inextricable from regional stability and growth. The Central Asia Energy-Water Development Program (CAEWDP) initiates a long-term effort to build energy and water security in Central Asia countries, combining national activities with efforts to nurture regional coordination. The three main components of the CAEWDP are: (i) energy develop¬ment, (ii) water productivity, and (iii) energy-water linkages. Component activities are implemented through three key outputs: preparing investments, strengthening national and regional institutions, and undertaking diagnostics and analysis. The program balances national and regional initiatives and mobi¬lizes donor support.
