Meeting at the UNECE

Chairman of the State Committee on Ecology and Environmental Protection Bakhrom Kuchkarov met with the UN Executive Secretary of UNECE Olga Algayerova within the framework of participation of the delegation of Uzbekistan in meetings of the conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions (April 29 – May 10, 2019).

According to the Permanent mission of Uzbekistan to the UN in Geneva, Olga Algayerova noted that the UNECE follows with great interest the reforms in ecology and environmental protection implemented in Uzbekistan. She highlighted a number of important positive steps taken by the country’s leadership related to preservation of biodiversity and ensuring environmental balance in Uzbekistan.

Based on the objectives of Development Strategy of Uzbekistan for 2017-2021 in ecology and environmental protection, the priority areas of development and strengthening bilateral cooperation were discussed. As a result, the UNECE expressed its readiness to assist Uzbekistan in organization of the third environmental review of Uzbekistan; sending experts to Tashkent on May 22-27 to discuss the accession of Uzbekistan to Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (Aarhus Convention) and holding a national workshop in Uzbekistan in Autumn 2019; preparation of a roadmap for implementation of a modern environmental impact assessment system in Uzbekistan for full implementation of the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a transboundary context (Espoo Convention) and development of necessary legislative acts on environmental assessment; drawing up a National Action Plan for integrated water resources management, water supply and sanitation in Uzbekistan within the framework of participation in Water Convention.

An agreement was reached with the UNECE leadership to actively use the Commission’s mechanisms to attract technical assistance in implementation of socially significant projects and programs for strengthening the potential of national environmental authorities and statistical agencies to collect and produce required data and apply environmental indicators in accordance with international principles and practices.
