Turkmenistan, from the first days since gaining its independence, stands for combing the efforts of the countries of the region with the aim of safeguarding and ensuring the rational use of water resources.  The modern water saving technologies are introduced into the agriculture, construction and use of industrial and hydraulic structures in the country.

Aimed at the consolidation of common efforts and mutually useful exchange of experience, the water diplomacy of Turkmenistan adds new priorities to the work of the UN and contributes to the flourishing and progress at the national, regional and global levels.

Among the main goals of the environment protection strategy consistently implemented by the President of Turkmenistan, are the provision of dynamic growth of economy through effective and rational use of natural resources and consolidation of international efforts in attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
