Abstract:

BMI View: The worsening macro outlook for Central Asia will compound the issue of water supplies in the region. This in turn poses a major risk - not only to our ---- growth outlook for the region s political stability and economic growth forecasts - but also impacts Kazakhstan s water availability over the coming years. ...This in turn poses a major risk - not only to our ---- growth outlook for the region s political stability and economic growth forecasts - but also impacts Kazakhstan s water availability over the coming years. While this presents advantages to water infrastructure groups as we expect it to stimulate heavy investment into the country s supply and sanitation facilities, it poses significant risks to water and sanitation utilities, which face declining supplies, increased costs and the possible cessation of supplies should water scarcity become more severe. The greatest issue in Kazakhstan continues to be that of water scarcity in many regions. ...While the issue of water supplies is a recurrent point of friction in Central Asia, the deteriorating macro outlook for the region is likely to diminish governments willingness to cooperate, as each country struggles to grapple with its own economic woes. The results of this are visible in the declining water being provided to Kazakhstan by Kyrgyzstan

...The geography of the two main life-lines in the region - the -,---km Amu Darya and -,---km Syr Darya rivers - lie at the root of the water disputes in Central Asia. The two rivers originate in the mountain ranges in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan respectively, before meandering westwards through Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to flow into the Aral Sea. ...This will foment tensions with Kazakhstan, which would suffer more frequent and/or larger water shortages if Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan divert more water for electricity exports in the coming years. We view the news that the Kazakhstan parliament s lower house has passed a series of amendments concerning the water supply and wastewater treatment sectors as an extremely positive move, both with regards to the managing of Kazakhstan s resources and the clear regulation of the sector for utilities, but also with regards to increasing the attractiveness of the water and sanitation sectors for potential investors. There was also an amendment to Articles -- and -- of the ---- Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes. ...Following a generally weakening domestic economy, including falling loan and private consumption levels, we expect water infrastructure growth to remain far below previously expected levels. However, there are significant opportunities over the medium term, from both government and municipal developments in water supply and wastewater infrastructure (in an attempt to address widespread water shortages as trans-boundary river inflows decline) and from big industrial users in the hydrocarbon, energy and mining sectors, which require vast volumes of water and are establishing their own private supply and treatment facilities.
