Water Stories

"Water Stories" is a journal on water issues in Central Asia. n-ost brought together about 20 journalists and photographers for joint workshops and analyses, resulting in those articles published in the final issue.

With their features, interviews and analyses, the journalists and photographers from five participating Central Asian countries, including Afghanistan, reflect upon the role of water in their respective countries from a transnational perspective. Participants crossed national boundaries and learned to view bodies of water, often ascribed with personal, nationalistic meaning, from the perspective of their neighbors.

The project was created by n-ost within the framework of the German Federal Foreign Office's Water Initiative for Central Asia.

The ensemble, Tschiltan, provides an auditory introduction to the region that it's all about: Central Asia
