The UNDP/GEF and Government of Uzbekistan project on “Market Transformation for Sustainable Rural Housing in Uzbekistan” seeks to transform the rapidly growing rural housing sector in Uzbekistan towards a more sustainable and low-carbon development pathway by designing, piloting and scaling-up a green mortgage market mechanism, which will boost the demand for low-carbon housing among the Uzbek rural population thus reducing GHG emission. The project objective is to provide Uzbekistan’s rural population with improved, affordable and environmentally friendly living conditions.
The project consists of four inter-linked outcomes. The first and principal outcome is the establishment of the green mortgage scheme to incentivize and eventually scale-up the demand for low-carbon housing. This outcome will be supported and enabled by three complementary outcomes related to strengthening domestic supply chain and capacities for construction of low-carbon housing (Outcome 2), introducing policies and regulations for low-carbon housing and settlements (Outcome 3) and raising public awareness about benefits and advantages of low-carbon housing (Outcome 4).
The project aims to strengthen minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for buildings, as well as to ensure their compliance. Thus, providing national building codes for housing construction in rural areas are feasible criteria for the achievement of beyond-minimum requirements. The most recent review of the norms along with the residential buildings codes was conducted by the Ministry of Construction of RUz in 2018-2019. The project provides required technical assistance and support to ensure that scheduled revision of the codes includes more mandatory energy use requirements in line with best international standards. The project also assists in the application of the EU Directives on energy consumption in buildings1, to the extent that this is possible and appropriate.
In 2018, within this project, JSC "ToshuyjoyLITI" has revised three building codes (SNiPs) that entered into force in 2018 (KMK 2.01.04-2018 "Building thermal engineering", ??? 2.01.18-00 “Norms of energy consumption for heating, ventilation and air conditioning of buildings and structures”, ??? 2.04.16-96 “Solar hot water installation”), and two that entered into force in January 2019 (KMK 2.03.10 - 2019 "Rooftops and Roofs", KMK 2.03.13-19 "Floors"). Also, the project developed a wholly new building code (SNiP): SNK 2.04.15 - 20 "Photovoltaic Stations”, which was enacted in September 2020.
The project is now seeking an International Consultant to assist with further work on a building code on passive houses, as well as associated work on energy performance modelling and on definition of a national standard for energy-active windows.
