image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Uzbekistan

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.

Foreword

Environmental Performance Reviews (EPRs) for countries in transition were initiated by Environment Ministers at the second Environment for Europe Ministerial Conference, held in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1993. Subsequently, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Committee on Environmental Policy decided to make the EPRs part of its regular programme. The first cycle of reviews, of 23 countries from the UNECE region, began in 1994 and was carried out until 2004.
