Environment and Energy

  • Improving Energy Efficiency in Buildings

    Almost all Kyrgyzstan’s housing stock was constructed during Soviet period some 35-60 years ago without any regard to energy efficiency. These buildings are now in obsolete condition and do not provide for minimum hygienic and comfort living conditions. Energy use per square meter is almost 3-5 times as those in EU. The project aims at reducing energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions in Kyrgyzstan’s building sector by 30-40% as compared to the current level.

  • Management of Polychlorinated biphenyls in Kyrgyzstan

    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a class of synthetic organic chemicals that were used globally in various industries because of their chemical stability. In 1970s it was recognized that their chemical stability is also a serious threat to human health and environment. PCBs are considered to be immune-toxic and can damage human immune system, liver, skin, reproductive system, gastrointestinal tract and thyroid gland. The project activities will provide Kyrgyzstan with tools to minimize environmental and health risks associated with PCBs. As part of the project UNDP will identify PCBs, secure stockpiles and enhance overall awareness about the issue. The project is also aimed at strengthening regulatory measures in this area and supporting institutions in managing PCB.

  • Small Hydro Power Development

    The main goal of the project is to accelerate sustainable small hydropower (SHP) electricity generation in Kyrgyzstan. As part of the project UNDP will help introduce a competitive private power framework to supply the grid with SHP-generated electricity at market-determined prices, assist the Government in closing private sector funded SHP investments.
