The National Policy Dialogue (NPD) in Kyrgyzstan follows on from an initiative on water supply and sanitation, undertaken in 2008 - 2009 in the framework of the European Union Water Initiative (EUWI) and sponsored by the OECD/EAP Task Force and the EC/Aidco. The ultimate objective of NPD will be to develop a Strategic Financial Plan for WRM in Kyrgyzstan to provide for the construction, rehabilitation, operation and maintenance of necessary infrastructure.

The UNECE-supported NPDs on IWRM programme assists Governments of the countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia in promoting implementation of IWRM in line with the principles of the UNECE Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes, its Protocol on Water and Health, the EU Water Framework Directive and other UNECE and EU instruments.
NPDs on IWRM are the main operational instrument of the EUWI, an international partnership that aims at contributing to the achievement of the water-related Millennium Development Goals. UNECE is the strategic partner to support the policy dialogue process on IWRM. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is the strategic partner for water supply and sanitation.
