"BIO-KG" Organic Movement Federations

Developing organic agriculture in the Kyrgyz Republic

BIO-KG contributed a proposal to the draft law on the irrigation system of Kyrgyzstan

On November 16 and 17, Osh and Jalal-Abad discussed amendments to draft laws on the management of internal irrigation systems, in which the Federation of Organic Movement has been directly involved for about three years, namely, in analyzing the situation to improve the water use system.

The conference was attended by the Director of the BIO-KG FOD I. Aidaraliev and the Federation program coordinator M.Boronbayev as members of the initiative group.

In general, the draft law “On amendments to some legislative acts of the Kyrgyz Republic (the Water Code, the Law “On Associations (Associations) of Water Users and unions of associations of water users”)” was adopted in three readings by the Jogorku Kenesh and sent for signature to the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, but it still needs to be adjusted in accordance with the realities.

For example, the participants proposed to expand the scope of state responsibility in providing irrigation water to every farm, regardless of the form of ownership of irrigation systems and the status of the subject of irrigation water supply management.
