It ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in January 2000 and the Kyoto Protocol in January 2003. In November 2006, Kyrgyzstan signed the Framework Convention on Environmental Protection for Sustainable Development in Central Asia with Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Finally, Kyrgyzstan signed the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in September 2016, which was adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris in December 2015 (Box 1.1). . Based on previous OECD work in this area, Kyrgyzstan has introduced sectoral MTEFes in the fields of health, education and agriculture; however, donor funds are not included in the MTEF. Although the Kyrgyz government has some experience in mtef design, the practice needs to be extended to other sectors (of the environment), including effective implementation.

The number of contracting parties that have ratified the Paris Convention currently stands at 60 states.
