The focus of the ECE review programme is to help countries in transition to improve their individual and collective performances in environmental management. The ultimate goal is the promotion of sustainable development and the convergence of environmental conditions and policies throughout Europe. The review of Kyrgyzstan’s environmental performance highlights the outstanding natural beauty of the country and the efforts and difficulties for environmental management to maintain it under difficult economic circumstances. It is hoped that the recommendations contained in this report will be helpful not only to government, but also environmental management, academics and policy makers around the world.

The preparatory mission for the Environmental Performance Review of Kyrgyzstan was organized in April 2000. The structure as well as the organizational details of the project were decided on that occasion. The review team for the project was constituted following these decisions and included national experts from Armenia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and the Russian Federation, together with the ECE secretariat, experts from the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and from the Bilthoven Division of the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health (WHO/ECEH). The costs of the participation of experts from countries in transition, as well as the travel expenses of the ECE secretariat, were covered by extrabudgetary funds that had been made available from Italy and Switzerland. The contributions were essential to the implementation of the project.
