This report describes the activities and management of the Central Asia Water and Energy Program (CAWEP) for the period January 1-December 31, 2020. It is the third Annual Report for the 3rd phase (2018-2022) of the program. CAWEP commenced in 2009 as the Central Asia Energy-Water Development Program and was renamed in 2019. It is a multi-donor trust fund managed by the World Bank with a 12.6 million US Dollars funding envelope, comprising (chronologically) 3.5 million US Dollars from the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), 1.0 million US Dollars from the United Kingdom Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), and 7.0 million Euros from the European Union. Program design for the 3rd phase was informed by lessons from prior phases, and the program development objective was adjusted to emphasize water security more broadly as well as enabling environment strengthening at both regional and national levels. The program development objective is to strengthen the enabling environment to promote water and energy security at regional level and in the beneficiary countries. This aligns with the World Bank's regional engagement framework that aims to strengthen connectivity and increase the economic value of water and energy resources in the region.
