Kyrgyz Republic

The landlocked Central Asian nation of the Kyrgyz Republic, or Kyrgyzstan, is highly vulnerable to climate change given its limited water supplies and high reliance on agriculture. It is working with the PPCR to articulate a strategy for strengthening climate resilience.


Building on national efforts to achieve sustainable development, the Government of Kyrgyzstan is developing a strategic program for climate resilience under the PPCR.

The program is to support climate adaptation and capacity building across in the agricultural, water, and energy sectors and to enhance capacity for climate adaptation at the institutional level.


The population is approximately 5.6 million, 45% of whom depend on agriculture as a source of livelihood


of electricity comes from hydropower, which is likely to be affected by climate impacts to water resources


The CIF programmatic approach to investment planning and implementation brings strategic value to CIF recipient countries. Working through a transparent, country-led process, the CIF fosters trust and collaboration among government ministries, civil society, indigenous peoples, private sector, and the MDBs that implement CIF funding. Together, they translate Nationally Determined Contributions and other national development and climate strategies into an actionable CIF investment plan. Rather than one-off projects, the plan comprises long-term, sequenced investments that mutually reinforce each other and link to other critical activities, such as policy and regulatory reform and capacity building. Under national government leadership, CIF stakeholders continue to work together to implement the plan, continually assessing progress and sharing lessons learned along the way.
