In Kazakhstan, there are fifteen Aarhus Centres across the country. The first Aarhus Centre was established in 2001 in the city of Pavlodar. The other Aarhus Centres are located in Aktobe, Almaty, Astana, Atyrau, Karaganda, Kokshetau, Kyzylorda, Mangistau, Petropavlovsk, Shimkent Shuchinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk, and Western Kazakhstan. In addition, the Union of Aarhus Centres and Innovative Development Entities is located in the capital Astana. The Aarhus Centres of Kazakhstan act as a bridge between the NGOs, local administration and the private sector and support environmental assessment and participatory decision-making. They also work to facilitate access to information in environmental matters for the public and to raise awareness of environmental and health-related risks.
