shahtoot damMinistry of Water and Energy officials announced that the designing process of Shahtoot Dam is completed and the constructing process of the dam will begin soon.

“We have approached the World Bank to cooperate with us on the construction of this vital project. We are trying to receive funds between USD 250mn-300mn. We’ve had several meetings with the World Bank officials,” said Deputy Minsiter of Water and Energy Shujauddin Ziayee.

According to the officials, about USD 200mn is required to fund the construction of the dam.
