OSCE supports public discussions on natural resources management in southern Kyrgyzstan

Three public discussions on the regulatory legal acts regarding the use of natural resources and environmental protection are being organised from 19 to 27 July 2016 by the OSCE Centre in Bishkek and the local Aarhus Centre.

"Local stakeholders should be aware of the environmental legislation upfront. This will help them to prevent conflict arising from the use of natural resources," said the Environmental Officer at the OSCE Centre. "I am glad to see that the Aarhus Centre in Osh has established a platform for communication between governmental, public and private structures, with the support of the OSCE."

During the discussions, participants will gain knowledge on issues of environmental protection, public access to environmental information, the legislative acts of the Kyrgyz Republic on ecology and the basic principles of the Aarhus Convention.

The event was organised as the part of the OSCE Centre’s project on promoting environmental security through dialogue and enhanced disaster risk reduction.
