Iranian and German officials have called for devising a roadmap for expanding cooperation in boundary waters and water management projects, including those on wastewater treatment. 
According to Mehr News Agency, Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian has been invited to participate in an exhibition on water, sewage, waste and raw materials management (IFAT 2018) in Munich, Germany.
Ardakanian held a meeting on Tuesday with Germany’s Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety Svenja Schulze on increasing ties in water and environmental fields. 
Referring to Iran’s shared waters with neighboring countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq, Ardakanian called for the transfer of Germany’s experience for implementing Iran’s projects on the rivers of Hirmand and Arvand in east and west of the country, respectively. 
Underlining the European country’s experience in implementing integrated water management in water-stressed regions of Iran, such as Zayanderud basin in the province of Isfahan, Ardakanian said, “Since late last year (ended March 20, 2018), the workgroup for managing water shortage has been established to adopt a unified approach on monitoring water resources, where we hope Germany would play an active role in such Iranian projects.”
