IHE Delft led two workshops on preventive diplomacy for transboundary water management focusing on the Central Asia region in 2014 and 2016. Officials and representatives participating were from Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. The workshop centered around legal and policy approaches to water governance, including legal frameworks at an international level, policy making based on regional scenario modelling and negotiation skills. This training was used as a starting point for a long-term reflection on water governance opportunities for the region and as a basis for designing future capacity building activities for the region to support regional transboundary water cooperation.
