Avoiding Water Wars: Water Scarcity and Central Asiańˇ╗s Growing Importance for Stability in Afghanistan and Pakistan: Congressional Report
John F. Kerry (ed)
This report examines U.S. policy with respect to water scarcity and water management in Central and South Asia. Water plays an in- creasingly important role in our diplomatic and national security interests in the region, and we must ensure that our approach is carefully considered and coordinated across the interagency. As water demand for food production and electricity generation increases, in part as a result of the quickening pace of climate change, so too must our efforts to provide water security. While much of our focus currently rests on Afghanistan and Pakistan, we must also consider the interests in the shared waters by India and the neighboring five Central Asian countries ńˇţ Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Turkmenistan. This report draws on staff travel to the region and the work of experts in government, academia, and international institutions. It provides significant insight and several key recommendations to advance U.S. policy in Central and South Asia with respect to this vital transboundary resource. This is a print on demand report.
