Twelfth NPD Steering Committee meeting

Twelfth NPD Steering Committee meeting

17 March 2015
Bishkek Kyrgyzstan

Over 50 representatives of different stakeholders and donors involved in improving the situation of water resources in Kyrgyzstan attended the 12th Steering Committee meeting on 17 March 2015. Expert group presented a study on ways to increase water use efficiency in the agriculture sector. Results suggest that introduction of sprinkler or drip irrigation in place of surface irrigation could boost agricultural productivity in Kyrgyzstan. At the next stage of the process, experts will study practical application of such technologies in specific regions of Kyrgyzstan. OECD is expected to get also involved in proposing suitable financing mechanisms that would allow Kyrgyz farmers to introduce new technologies.

Press release of the meeting is available in English and in Russian
