The key objective of the project is the development and implementation of strategies leading towards an integrated water resources management (IWRM) for a Mongolian model region characterized by a water scarce environment and highly dynamic and competetive uses. The model region in focus is the Kharaa river basin located in the north-east of Mongolia.
