From CAWater-Info portal administration

Over last period of time the messages containing inappropriate propositions about the Governments of the region, aiming to the incitement of inter-state conflicts, and containing a set of distorted information without indicating the information source and with the signature of "independent investigators", "political scientists", "former employees" etc., are coming one by one to our address.

Given that the aim of the portal is to create information space for strengthening inter-state cooperation and sustainable management of transboundary water resources, the editors did not consider it possible to publish these materials.

However, in order to prevent penetration of unreliable information and data into the various information sources , we decided to present all the comparative data on the region, in addition to materials of our ôAnalytical sectionö, where the main results of comparative analysis of data on the five countries from 1980 up to now are placed for public review.

In addition, we ask all visitors of our portal to keep in mind that our news digest is based only on materials/information from official sources, international agencies and official international media.

We invite everybody to participate in thematic discussions organized on the portal, for example, dedicated to World Water Forum, etc., but we ask you to follow our principles of communication: fairness, kindness, the desire for consensus.
