Swedish Aral Sea Society
The Swedish Aral Sea Society aims at:
- providing information about the Aral Sea area;
- creating opinion on the environment and the health situation in the region;
- influencing politicians and authorities, national and international organisations to take concrete actions;
- carrying out own projects.
As the Aral Sea depletion mainly is a result of mismanagement of water resources, both related to water quantity and water quality of the rivers discharging into the Aral Sea. A large part of the activities of the Society has concerned information, awareness raising, capacity building and opinion creation about the need for a more sustainable use of water resources. This has been done through seminars, school programmes, publications and scientific papers, participation in scientific conferences and by networking.
