Country Hydromet Diagnostic : Kyrgyzhydromet Peer Review Report (English)

The Country Hydromet Diagnostics (CHD) is a tool indicating where additional focus and support are needed, based on defined maturity levels for each of the ten critical elements of the hydromet value cycle. It responds to the need for a standardized and practical analytical foundation for targeted and coherent hydromet investments. The tool is in its first phase of development (2020-2021) and has been road-tested in selected countries, including the Kyrgyz Republic. MeteoSwiss was tasked by WMO to carry out the road-testing of the tool by peer-reviewing Kyrgyzhydromet services. The peer-review was facilitated by the World Bank and financed by the Central Asia Water and Energy Program (CAWEP). The Kyrgyz Republic is a landlocked country in Central Asia, with a surface of 199,951 km and a population of approximately 6’590’000 people. As Switzerland, the Kyrgyz Republic has a predominantly mountainous terrain. The country’s climate is continental with significant local variations, particularly according to differences in elevation. Kyrgyzhydromet is the agency for hydrometeorology under the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Kyrgyz Republic. It was established in 1926. The Kyrgyz Republic is a member of the World Meteorological Organization since 1994. Its main tasks are: a) Providing the government of the Kyrgyz Republic, the population and various sectors of the economy with hydrometeorological information as well as information about pollution of the natural environment. b) Issuing warnings of natural and dangerous hydrometeorological phenomena, such as avalanches, mudflows, floods, storm winds, heavy precipitation, etc. and communicating them to the population, relevant structures of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, interested ministries and agencies. c) Making and issuing forecasts for weather, water availability of rivers, crop yields, phenological forecasts. d) Providing analysis of hydrometeorological conditions and information on pollution of the natural environment, as well as gathering publications of scientific and applied reference books. e) Maintaining a database on the state of the natural environment.
