image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Kyrgyzstan

The report takes stock of the progress made by Kyrgyzstan in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2000. It assesses the implementation of the recommendations in the first review. It also covers nine issues of importance to Kyrgyzstan concerning policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular water management, land management and biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of forests. The report places particular emphasis on the promotion of sustainable development, as the country gives a high priority to this issue.

Sustainable management and protection of water resources

The 1999 first Environmental Performance Review already highlighted the difficult situation of Kyrgyzstan regarding the management of water resources, a complex issue with components both at national and regional levels. It recommended to the country to improve water monitoring, elaborate a water strategy and move step-by-step toward integrated water resource management. Little progress has been made in all these directions mostly due to lack of capacities and difficulties to mobilize financial resources.
