Partnerships for Enhanved Engagement in Research (PEER)

Speeches Shim

The goal of PEER in Central Asia is to improve domestic and regional water management for better cross-border cooperation and less water waste. PEER awards have a strong potential for developmental impact and are tailored to investigate sustainable transboundary water management covering non-conventional agricultural crop production, climate and environmental protection, and improving water and energy use efficiencies at the farm and river-basin levels.

Beneficiaries: Local water managers, researchers, and farmers

Objectives: PEER program is designed to increase scientific collaboration and networking between researchers from USAID-presence countries, and U.S.-based researchers, and promotes research and capacity-building activities with strong potential development impacts. PEER partnerships leverage major research investments made by the U.S. government science agencies to improve development outcomes in USAID-presence countries.
