    In recent years, the Governments of the Caspian Sea littoral States have indicated in various occasions in recent years that sturgeon rehabilitation and management in the Caspian Sea is a priority issue for them. A number of national and international activities are carried out to support recovery of sturgeon stocks in the Caspian Sea. Examples of these activities include amongst others: • Studies, stakeholder consultations and workshops organized by the multi-donor Caspian Environment Programme (CEP) funded by Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank, the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the European Union (EU). • The new regional United Nations Development Programme–Global Environment Facility (UNDP–GEF) project “The Caspian Sea: Restoring Depleted Fisheries and Consolidation of a Permanent Regional Environmental Governance Framework” (Cas pEco), due to become effective in early 2009. • Capacity building activities in fisheries management by the World Bank Trust Fund for Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development (TFESSD). • Training activities by the UNDP-GEF project “Integrated Conservation of Priority Globally Significant Migratory Bird Wetlands Habitat: a Demonstration on Three Sites”. • Workshops organized under the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) project “Capacity building for the recovery and management of the sturgeon fisheries of the Caspian Sea (GCP/INT/3101). The Caspian Fisheries Technical Workshop, jointly organized by the above mentioned FAO TCP project and the World Bank, and held in Rome, Italy, from 28 to 30 April 2008, indicated an urgent need for training in sturgeon hatchery operations. Similarly, the 2008 work programme of UNDP-GEF project “Integrated Conservation of Priority Globally Significant Migratory Bird Wetlands Habitat: a Demonstration on Three Sites” listed among its activities the conducting of training workshops on development of alternative livelihoods and business, including the organization of training workshops on fish farming. In order not to duplicate activities, but reinforce each others strengths instead, the UNDP-GEF project, FAO and the World Bank have teamed-up with the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan to provide high quality, targeted training to hatchery sta ff from the Caspian Sea littoral countries.
