Kazakhstan has a wide range of ecological zones, including semi-arid, forested steppes, warm moderate deserts, cold semi-deserts, wetlands and meadows. The country’s biodiversity faces threats from irrigation and agricultural expansion, industrialization, pollution and road construction. Kazakhstan has been working to promote the sustainable management of its ecosystems through actions that seek to mainstream biodiversity into national development frameworks.

  • Kazakhstan, through the Ministry of Ecology, Geology and Natural Resources, hosted the Central Asia Regional Trialogue in 2019 to raise awareness on the key messages of the two interlinked IPBES Thematic Assessment Reports on Pollinators, Pollination and Food Production and Land Degradation and Restoration.
  • Under BES-Net II, Kazakhstan is receiving catalytic support through the BES Solution Fund to implement key priority actions identified during the Trialogue.
  • Kazakhstan is also receiving support from BES-Net to contribute to national efforts addressing land degradation, building on the latest knowledge and evidence.
