The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) carries out Environmental Performance Reviews (EPR) in its member States that are not members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in order to improve their environmental management by recommending ways to achieve better policy implementation. This first EPR of Turkmenistan covers 13 issues related to policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular the sustainable management and protection of water resources, waste management, air pollution, forestry, biodiversity and protected areas, energy and climate change.




The Review of Turkmenistan began in November 2010 with the preparatory mission, during which the final structure of the report was established. Thereafter, the review team of international experts was constituted. It included experts from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Portugal, the Russian Federation, Slovakia, Switzerland and Ukraine, together with experts from the secretariat of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE).
