South Caucasus region transboundary report card

The central Kura River basin is a large river basin in the mountainous South Caucasus region of Eurasia. It contains important water resources for three countries—Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan—and has a combined population of some 17 million people. There are many threats to these shared water resources, including nutrient inputs, heavy metal pollution, and sediment erosion. Successful management of these shared resources is critical to the social, economic, and ecological prosperity of the region. This newsletter details the first attempt at an integrated water quality report card for the central Kura River basin.
