This report was produced by GEF/UNDP project National Capacity Self-Assessment for Global Environmental Management (NCSA) UNDP/GEF/KYR/03/G31. The executing agency for the project is the Ministry of Ecology and Emergencies of the Kyrgyz Republic.
The main goal of the project is to identify and analyze the priorities and needs for the capacity building of the Kyrgyz Republic to implement the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification on individual, institutional and system levels. These three conventions, adopted in Rio-de- Janeiro in 1992, form the base of international environmental protection efforts. Intergovernmental efforts to conserve the environment and promote the sustainable use of natural resources will improve the ecological condition of the earth.
