Kyrgyz Republic

At a Glance

The Kyrgyz Republic is a landlocked, mountainous country in Central Asia susceptible to natural hazards such as earthquakes and landslides, as well as economic shocks resulting from volatile food prices and political instability. Impacts from natural hazards and economic shocks may be amplified by expected climate change stressors such as increases in temperature, extreme weather events, and glacial melt. These impacts and other climate change stressors are likely to significantly affect key natural resources, economic sectors, and the governance landscape. Top emissions were mainly from the energy sector, followed by emissions from agriculture, industrial processes, and waste.
