More than 2 billion people in the world do not have enough water.

In just two years, half of earth’s population will experience a shortage of clean, safe water.   By 2025, this shortage will extend to almost two-thirds of the planet.

Clean water is one of our planet’s scarcest and most precious resources and Kazakhstan, as the largest landlocked country in the world, has never taken water security for granted.

We actively cooperate with our neighbours to manage trans-boundary rivers.

Currently, Kazakhstan is successfully addressing one of the toughest environmental challenges in the world: the drying up of the Aral Sea.   Thanks to our efforts, the waters of the shrinking Aral Sea are gradually returning.
