The aim of this paper is to present the Water Relations in Central Asia Dataset (WRCAD, http://wrcad.info/), a new, open-access dataset specifically conceived to analyse transboundary water relations among the countries of the Aral Sea basin in Central Asia in the period 1991-2013. Following a methodological section that explains how the empirical material was collected and categorised, the paper illustrates the evolution of interstate relations in the basin discussing some of the key issues and trends that emerge from the dataset.
