Effective gender mainstreaming
The project will reduce the risks of landslide events in Kyrgyz Republic. The project interventions are expected to be both structural (including civil works and equipment) and non-structural (including capacity building, planning, and training). The project is expected to comprise three outputs: (i) landslide-prone areas protected; (ii) landslide risk management capacity improved; and (iii) disaster insurance coverage strengthened. The project outcome is expected to be: risks from landslides on infrastructure and settlements reduced. The project is expected to be aligned with the following impact: reduced human and material loss resulting from climate- and geophysical-related disasters.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Kyrgyz Republic is in a seismically active area with highly variable weather patters and is at a high risk of the impacts of geophysical disasters and climate change. Landslides triggered by snowmelt, precipitation, and seismic activity are a frequent occurrence particularly in the Fergana Valley in the south west of the country. They cause injury and loss of life, damaging infrastructure and settlements, and disrupting basic services, transport, and logistics. Landslides may become more frequent due to earlier snowmelt, melting permafrost, and more intense precipitation events.

The national development program for 2018-2022 includes proactive management of disaster and climate change risks, and reduction of geophysical risks. The Strategy for the Comprehensive Protection of the Population and the Territory of the Kyrgyz Republic from Emergency Situations for 2018-2030 seeks to reduce disaster losses through, among other measures, improved monitoring, forecasting, and construction of protective structures. The Kyrgyz Republic Nationally Determined Contribution to the UNFCCC Paris Agreement includes its intent to prevent climate change related damage and losses to the country.
