AKIPRESS.COM - A third Aarhus Center in Kyrgyzstan, located in Chlopon-Ata in Issyk-Kul region, was officially opened with the support of the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek and the State Agency for Environmental Protection and Forestry of Kygryzstan (SAEPF) on November 9, the OSCE reports.

Pierre von Arx, the Head of the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek, said: "The Aarhus Centre in the Issyk-Kul region will contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Aarhus Convention in Kyrgyzstan and the implementation of the National Strategy for the Development of Aarhus Centers for 2015-2018. The new Center will help to establish a constructive dialogue between local authorities and the population to address the most acute environmental problems in the Issyk-Kul region.”
