Kazakhstan’s government has secured a multi-million dollar loan from the World Bank to help save the Aral Sea. The money will be used to implement the second stage of a project aimed at saving the northern part of the sea. Now using the new USD 126-million loan from the World Bank, they plan to build a second dam which they hope will bring the water back to the deserted port of Heralsk. (Dow Jones)
