The estimated cost of the project is $100 million, $85 million of which are the means of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, which is a part of WB group, while other $15 million – of the country’s government.
Bank financing would consider investment opportunities regarding four lakes - Khojasan, Lokhbatan, Gu, and Girmizi, according to the WB.
“Both the government and industry are paying increasing attention to the improvement of environmental quality in urban areas as a way to sustain investments and development.
