Caspian Sea 23 Giwa Regional Assessment
This report presents the results of the Global International Waters
Assessment of the Caspian Sea drainage basin (GIWA region 23). The
geographic boundary of the region is defined as the catchment area
of the Caspian Sea which, entirely or partially, covers eight countries:
Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Turkey and
Armenia. The majority of the drainage basin is occupied by the five
littoral states: Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
The transboundary waters that are identified within the region are the
Caspian Sea itself and the Volga River that has a major hydrological
impact on the Caspian Sea.
