Strategic Agenda

Preservation of a favorable environmental quality and improvement of sanitary – epidemiological situation in Bishkek and its suburbs.


The EBRD is considering supporting improvements to Bishkek’s solid waste facilities. The EBRD would extend a sovereign loan of up to EUR 11 million to the Kyrgyz Republic, to be on-lent to the City of Bishkek for the benefit of the municipal solid waste collection company Tazalyk and the new landfill management company to be established (jointly, the Companies). The overall project will improve the City’s solid waste management, including collection across the city, investment in an urgently needed sanitary landfill, and the closure of the existing dumpsite, which is at the end of its economic life. The investment will result in an improved level of public service, the introduction of waste recycling and environmental improvements.

The project will measure success by monitoring the following indicators before and after project implementation: Population with improved solid waste management services. Measured by the number of households with improved solid waste management services multiplied by average household size; and Reduction in tonnes of CO2 equivalent due to diversion of solid waste from landfill disposal. Measured by the tonnes of waste diverted away from landfill multiplied by average greenhouse gas emission potential based on waste content.
