There are two Aarhus Centres in Kyrgyzstan: one in the city of Osh (since 2004) and one in the capital Bishkek (since 2014). The primary focus of the Aarhus Centres is to monitor the pollution in environmental hotspots and to facilitate dialogue between mining industries and local communities, facilitating access to information and informed decision-making on the Aarhus Convention Protocol on Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR), promote community-based disaster risk reduction and foster stakeholder engagement in uranium legacy remediation.

  • Aarhus Centre Osh
