Surveillance Cameras to be Installed in Samarkand Region to Combat Fly-Tipping

The Ministry of Ecology in the Samarkand region is taking measures to combat the problem of the illegal dumping of waste, with the Central Office of Dispatching and Online Monitoring developing a plan to install online surveillance cameras to help prevent fly-tipping. To begin with, 25 cameras will be installed in Samarkand in the most polluted and densely populated areas. Subsequently, it is planned to install 100 cameras throughout the region to ensure comprehensive control over the environmental situation. The surveillance system will be based on the database of the regional Department of Internal Affairs. A list of people and the registration plates of cars that disrespect the environment will be created. Inspectors from the Department of the Ecology will then contact the offenders and draw up appropriate administrative protocols. Such an online surveillance system is already successfully operating in other regions of Uzbekistan, such as Tashkent and its environs, as well as in Namangan, Andijan, Syr Darya and the Surkhandarya regions.

Kyrgyzstan: Forum helps local suppliers find partners in mining business

BISHKEK (TCA) — The first Forum of suppliers of goods and services for the mining industry of Kyrgyzstan was held in Bishkek on June 27. It was not a traditional meeting when all the invitees are sitting in the hall while speakers perform reports in a planned manner. Establishing B2B contacts During six hours, the ten largest mining companies, including KAZ Minerals Bozymchak, Kumtor Gold Company, Altynken and Highland Exploration, and 28 supplier companies from various sectors of the economy established B2B contacts and concluded preliminary agreements in several halls of Hyatt Regency Bishkek. In front of the hotel, the companies demonstrated modern heavy mining equipment including excavators and bulldozers, while inside the hotel there were representatives of the largest subsoil users and local suppliers. Subsoil users explained the procurement procedures to suppliers and answered their questions. Suppliers presented their products and services at stands and in presentations. Along with suppliers of direct goods and services such as design, exploration, testing, drilling and blasting, the exhibition also included related services — food supply, workwear, lighting equipment and much more that can be purchased in the country. Askar Sydykov, Executive Director of the International Business Council (IBC) based in Bishkek, told how the idea of holding the forum appeared. “Suppliers of goods and services often turned to IBC with a request to acquaint them with purchasers, and not only for the mining industry, but also for other sectors of the economy. We decided to bring together suppliers of goods and services in one place to help them establish contacts for further joint projects,” the IBC head explained. Lack of information The cooperation often fails due to the lack of information. For example, not everyone knows that the country produces materials for mining and recycles industrial waste. Subsoil users do not always have information on where and what purchases can be made in Kyrgyzstan. At the same time, they are ready to buy more from local companies and enterprises. “Recently, the mining industry has been developing rapidly in our country, and the need for services is increasing. We support the initiative to ensure that as many local companies operate in Kyrgyzstan. The more local people work, study and develop, the less problems with local communities will investors face,” said Aigerim Omokoeva, Executive Director of the Aji Service LLC that provides special equipment and other services for the mining industry. The main activity of the company is blasting and sale of explosive materials for industrial explosions. “In terms of safety, we have a great responsibility towards people and comply with all international and local safety and environment standards,” she added. Efficiency of local suppliers could be improved if local companies are given open access to tenders. “Kyrgyzaltyn (Kyrgyz Gold) state enterprise’s information about tenders is the only source for us to participate in tenders. We learn about tenders through our colleagues, geologists, who have been working in the industry for a long time,’” Omokoeva said. How to become a Kumtor supplier Kumtor Gold...

Central Asia: EU announces additional €10 million to deal with radioactive waste

BISHKEK (TCA) — At the international donors’ conference on nuclear remediation in London on November 8, the European Union has announced additional €10 million, in order to support its partners in Central Asia in dealing with toxic and radioactive waste in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. This comes on top of the €16 million, which the EU had already contributed to this end. The EU is leading the implementation of the sustainable remediation programme in the region. For more than 10 years it has worked on feasibility studies and environmental impact assessments, with an initial investment of around €14 million. Work has been carried out in close collaboration with the Governments concerned, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the UN Development Program (UNDP). Remediation plans are the next phase. They have been endorsed by the relevant Governments and now require urgent action. The estimated one billion tons of hazardous processing waste abandoned in the region represent a threat to the people and the environment. The programme has identified seven priority sites (see the map) where action must be taken to prevent the pollution of the Fergana valley – the breadbasket of Central Asia - by the Syr Darya river. The international donors’ conference on nuclear remediation in London is an initiative of the Kyrgyz government and was hosted by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), which manages the account created to finance environmental remediation projects in Central Asia.
