This is the second Environmental Performance Review (EPR) of Uzbekistan published by UNECE. The report takes stock of the progress made by Uzbekistan in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2001. It assesses the implementation of the recommendations in the first review (Annex I). It also covers nine issues of importance to Uzbekistan 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, energy and climate change. The report places particular emphasis on climate change and water, as the country gives a high priority to this issue.

Monitoring, information, public participation and education

The first Environmental Performance Review (EPR) of Uzbekistan (2001) emphasized the need to reorganize and strengthen the monitoring network in the country, specifically in terms of the collection, processing and dissemination of data, so as to provide the necessary information for decision makers and the general public. In particular, it recommended that Uzbekistan improve its technical capacities for evaluating air pollution; establish a costeffective biodiversity monitoring system; develop centralized databases for groundwater; and train monitoring and data management experts. To ensure public participation in all aspects of environmental protection, the first EPR recommended that the State Committee for Nature Protection (SCNP) initiate cooperation with non-governmental organizations and increase public participation in protected area management.
