As concerns rise over a shortage of water across the country, the Ministry of Energy and Water says required reforms will be brought to management of water zones across Afghanistan.
In an interview with TOLOnews, Water and Energy Minister Ali Ahmad Osmani stressed the need for better implementation of big projects to control Afghanistan’s waters.
“We have started reforms in three areas in order to improve work on our projects,” he said. “Making the contract process easy for contractor companies is another part of our plans.”
An economic analyst, Azrakhsh Hafizi, says government should have a clear policy on water management and it should accelerate hydropower dam projects across the country.
“Government should make bigger plans to control Afghanistan’s waters. These plans should be implemented in the framework of a clear water policy,” Hafizi said.
