This report presents recommendations on the reform of economic instruments for water resources management in Kyrgyzstan, specifically on tariffs for urban water supply and sanitation (WSS) and irrigation water, pollution charges, surface water abstraction charges for enterprises (consumptive and non-consumptive uses), specific land tax rates for the Issyk-Kul biosphere reserve, as well as taxes and customs duty on products contributing to water pollution. For each instrument, alternative reform options are identified and assessed, and preferred options put forward, with an action plan.

Cholpon-Ata city case study on water supply and sanitation tariffs

Preferred scenarios for reform of water supply and sanitation tariffs are often site-specific. For Cholpon-Ata city, two scenarios for reform of water supply and sanitation tariffs are assessed, and impacts of each scenario are synthesised in this chapter. Supporting and accompanying measures are proposed to facilitate implementation – these provide input to the draft Action Plan. Some of the measures are quite universal and could be applied also in other settlements.
