1st Environmental Performance Review of Kyrgyzstan

Published: December 2000

This report is about the 1st EPR of Kyrgyzstan. The review team 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. The review of Kyrgyzstan’s environmental performance highlighted the outstanding natural beauty of the country and the efforts and difficulties for environmental management to maintain it under difficult economic circumstances, which call for substantial changes in the economic structure and in production processes. It is hoped that Kyrgyz environmental management will find the methods for effective coordination with other national administrations in order to strengthen its contribution to a future sustainable development of the country.
