Basing on different project ideas IPP endorsed by the relevant Ministries of the countries,– and on-going species projects – WWF Central Asia programme developed a middle-size GEF project on regional Econet development. Via UNEP as implementing agency we received GEF funding – and it was possible exclusively thanks to WWF-Netherlands matching funds. So since April 2003 WWF Central Asian programme is running GEF-UNEP WWF middle-size 3 year project «Econet Central Asia».
All databases, GIS – as soon as finalized, and ECONET scheme would be accessible for all relevant Ministries/decision makers of the countries of the region, as well as NGOs. Now some information on the project is initially presented on the site of REC http://www.carec.kz/, database on legislation is presented on a special site http://www.ca-econet.info, all materials will be passed to SIC ICSD.
