Afghan government to build 20 more dams

The Ministry of Energy and Water (MoEW) plans to build at least 20 large and medium-sized dams in the country to improve management of water resources.

This comes after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani criticized the Afghan government’s water management and dam projects. He was referring to Afghan dams such as Kajaji, Kamal Khan, Bakhshabad and Salma in provinces that border Iran.

The Afghan government continues to enhance its efforts to better manage water resources as 80% of Afghanistan’s water flows to Iran and Pakistan without being used inside Afghanistan.

According to MoEW, 15 dams are currently under construction and the budget for 15 other projects is currently being reviewed by the National Procurement Authority (NPA).

MoEW spokesperson Basir Azimi said the ministry was preparing to start working on the Kafkan, Tirpol and Pashdan dam projects in Heart, along the Harirod River to manage water in the east and southern zones of the country.
