The Ministry of Natural Resources of the Republic of Uzbekistan (formerly State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Ecology and Environment Protection (SCEEP)), in collaboration with UNECE and UNEP, is developing a methodology for a National State of the Environment Report (NSoER) and is strengthening national capacities for its regular production, based on international guidelines and good practices.
Beyond providing data on the environment, the new edition of the NSoER for Uzbekistan aims to improve public accessibility of environmental data and raise awareness about the state and trends of the environment in the country. By making the data on the environment available, the NSoER will also foster public participation in environmental decision-making and set up the practice of regular reporting on the status of the environment in the future.
This workshop, which is organized by the Ministry of Natural Resources with the support of UNECE, UNEP and FAO aims to discuss key foci, types of development challenges, data sources and potential key messages of the NSoER for Uzbekistan.
Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in English, Uzbek and Russian languages.
