On August 25, 2022, H.E. Konstantin Obolensky, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Switzerland to the Republic of Uzbekistan handed over the office and special equipment procured by SDC as well as textbooks developed by the SDC supported project to the Ministry of water resources of Uzbekistan (MoWR).
"Today's event for transferring office, special equipment, WST textbooks, demo plots, and laboratories is not just a PR action. This is a component of the consistent and systematic work aimed at reforming Uzbekistan’s water sector in close cooperation with the Ministry of Water Resources. At the national level, it includes strengthening the strategic IWRM framework, such as developing the Water Concept and Water Strategy and drafting the Water Code. At lower levels of water hierarchy, it fosters the implementation of IWRM principles", – said the Ambassador.
