Third phase

The establishment of a training centre for the safety of hydrotechnical installations in Taraz, Kazakhstan has been facilitated by the project. In February 2013 a seminar “training the trainers” was held with the support of the Diagnostic Centre of Gosvodkhoznadzor of Uzbekistan. Further training for participants from Central Asian countries were supported in 2014.

In cooperation with ESCAP and with support of the Russian Federation a training seminar on the safety of small dams was organised in Moscow 30 June - 2 July 2014.

In the framework of the bilateral cooperation between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan on dam safety of individual dams and other hydrotechnical installations, work was initiated to establish an automated monitoring system for the Kirov dam on the transboundary Talas river. A safety review was also made in 2013 of the Ortotokoi dam on the transboundary Chu river. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation has made funds available for improving the monitoring system at this dam.

In order to further facilitate education and training a text book on the safety of hydrotechnical installation has been developed with the support of the Eurasian Development Bank and published in the beginning of 2014. The text book includes a printed text that can be found here and a CD-disk with the annexes that is found here.
