Building on the adoption of new water laws by Kazakhstan in 2003, Armenia in 2007 and Uzbekistan in 2009, GWP Central Asia and Caucasus (CACENA) pressed on to help put laws into practice.
This requires persistence to change attitudes and behaviour – of the national and local authorities responsible for water, the environment, energy, agriculture and basins, and of parliamentarians. GWP CACENA continued to put forward GWP knowledge resources to build the capacity of national and international agencies involved in water issues. In 2010, ten workshops and training sessions were organised by the region's Country Water Partnerships. The main target groups were water practitioners in newly-established water councils.
