Kyrgyzstan ratified the UNFCCC on May 25, 2000 (entered into force on 23 August 2000), and joined the Kyoto Protocol on 13 May 2003. In March 2003 the Initial National Communication (INC) of Kyrgyzstan to the UNFCCC was published and submitted to the Conference of Parties. In 2008 Kyrgyzstan prepared its Second National Communication (SNC) and submitted to COP 14. The SNC includes vulnerability assessment and adaptation measures to climate change. The assessment covered the most vulnerable sectors (water resources, population health, agriculture and climatic emergency situations). The share of the agriculture in the national GDP is about 30%. Plant cultivation takes 54.4% of the agriculture input into GDP, and cattle-breeding provides 43.9% accordingly. The heat availability of the vegetative period for 2100 has been determined for all climatic regions of the Kyrgyz Republic (Northwest, Northeast, Internal Tien-Shan, Southwest) and emissions scenarios. As a whole, distribution of the areas with various heat availabilities will essentially change. The percent of the area with values of humidity lower than 0.30 (arid zone of deserts and semi-arid zone of semi-deserts) can increase approximately up to 23.3-49.7 % in 2100. The Chui valley comes to be among the most vulnerable and affected. Such changes of humidifying can result alongside with necessity of re-structuring of agriculture sector as well as in essential changes of natural vegetative and animal communities.
The proposed project is considered as one of the key national priorities and will ensure the Kyrgyzstan’s Chui valley ability to adapt to long-term climate change, by integration of climate change concerns into the agriculture management.
Therefore, the principal responsibility of the Consultant is to develop the Project Proposal in standard European Commission template for the proposed pilot project.
