Transboundary Basins // Reconciling Resource Uses in Transboundary Basins: Assessment of the Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems Nexus in the Syr Darya River Basin
By UNECE. The Syr Darya Basin, shared by Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, represents a classic example for exploring the interlinked and often competing inter-sectoral and cross-border claims to common resources. Such claims often create sources of real or likely tensions, but also, at the same time, opportunities for optimizing the shared use of water, energy and food resources in the basin and – in a wider context – the whole of Central Asia.
