Forest Accounts of Kyrgyz Republic : Kyrgyz Republic Integrated Forest Ecosystem Management Project - KR WAVES Plus (English)
The economy of the Kyrgyz Republic is heavily dependent on the country’s natural resources. However, there has been until now a broad lack of awareness of the true value of these resources and how to sustainably manage them for the benefit of the country’s population. As a result, natural resources, notably forests, pastures, and natural wildlife habitats, have been placed under considerable strain due to inappropriate exploitation. Various actions are being undertaken supporting a transition towards “green growth” and achievement of the sustainable development goals in the Kyrgyz Republic. This technical report shows the results of the pilot implementation of Natural Capital Accounting (NCA) for Forests in the Kyrgyz Republic for the year 2018 under the KR WAVES Plus initiative, using the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) framework.
