Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, United nations development program and Global environmental facility: project implementation results and new perspectives for cooperation

18 September 2017 Astana – Implementation of the joint Project of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, United nations development program (UNDP) and Global environmental facility (GEF) “NIP update, integration of POPs into national planning and promoting sound healthcare waste management in Kazakhstan” finishes this year.


On 18 September final conference was held on “Sound chemicals and waste management in Kazakhstan: goals, results and perspectives”, which discussed Project outcomes and introduced specific national and international practices for promotion of sound chemicals and waste management.


The next day inception workshop was held for a new joint project of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan/UNDP/GEF “Initial assessment of Kazakhstan in the framework of Minamata convention”, which is planned for 2017-2019. The project is aimed at supporting the Government of Kazakhstan in conducting initial mercury assessment, which will allow the country to define national requirements and needs to ratify Minamata convention and will create foundation for future implementation of the convention.


«The project on healthcare waste has demonstrated practical results of environment-based approach to healthcare waste management through creation of seven centers for safe decontamination of healthcare waste in pilot regions of the project. We were able to achieve multiple goals of the Concept for transition of the RK to green economy and Stockholm convention on persistent organic pollutants: toxic releases are reduced, conditions for recycling are created, and the best available technologies are used. Furthermore, the project has provided valuable support to the Republic of Kazakhstan on updating the national implementation plan for the commitments of the Republic of Kazakhstan under Stockholm convention on persistent organic I in the part of unintended and new persistent organic pollutants (POPs). It is worth mentioning significant contribution of the project in implementing 1st stage mercury inventory and work to assist Kazakhstan in future ratification of Minamata convention», - said Zhan Nurbekov, director of waste management division of the Ministry of energy of the RK.


«Thanks to the project we received modern equipment for decontamination of hazardous healthcare waste. We are very happy that we got an alternative, which definitively justifies transition to new technologies, which are environmentally friendly and which completely exclude environment pollution by toxic substances. We support implementation of environmentally sound, clean technologies of European class and European level all over Kazakhstan», - said Vladimir Mikhailenko, Chief physician of the Regional drug addiction clinic of Kostanay region.
