The Changing Aral Sea - Foresight Brief No. 003 - October 2017
United Nations Environment Programme

The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth largest inland lake. Its hydrological balance is strongly determined by inflows from the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers which are fed by glacial melt waters from the southwestern Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan and the Tien Shan Mountains that border Kyrgyzstan and China. Research indicated the Aral Sea would eventually split into two by 2030. However, re-engineering along the Syr Darya River delta in the Small Aral Sea has shown the possibilities of deliberate intervention.

The United Nations World Water Development Report 2017. Wastewater: The Untapped Resource
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, United Nations Development Programme, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, United Nations Human Settlements Programme, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, World Water Assessment Programme

The 2017 World Water Development Report shows that improved wastewater management is as much about reducing pollution at the source, as removing contaminants from wastewater flows, reusing reclaimed water and recovering useful by-products. Together, these four actions generate social, environmental and economic benefits for all society, contributing to overall well-being and health, water and food security, and sustainable development.
