National State of the Environment Report: Uzbekistan
A healthy environment and its sustainable management are critical for citizens' well-being and supporting Uzbekistan's growing economy. The National State of the Environment Report (NSoER) is a comprehensive document that provides a snapshot of current environmental trends in Uzbekistan's socio-economic development for citizens, experts, and policy-makers. This report was prepared with the support of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, along with financial support from the Global Public Goods and Challenges Programme Cooperation Agreement between the European Commission and UNEP.
A decade of environmental change is captured in the recent National State of the Environment Report of Uzbekistan.

Decade of trends for critical environmental issues, including air, water, and biodiversity, are reviewed in the recent National State of the Environment Report.
The analyzed environmental trends need to inform decision making and improve citizen engagement in natural resource management and environmental protection. This report thus aims to connect actions creating drivers and pressures influencing the state of the environment and relevant responses to address environmental challenges.
Our approach uses the Drivers– Pressures–State–Impacts–Responses (DPSIR) framework to draw connections between the state of the environment and the drivers and pressures on the environment. The framework brings together five critical elements of development in a connected framework to integrate the causes of environmental degradation (as well as environmental improvements) into a chain of causes and consequences. The DPSIR framework provides a suitable model for describing the interaction between human activities and the environment.
Based on the application of the DPSIR framework, the NSoER team, with the participation of stakeholders, identified the specific drivers, pressures, and components of the environment, such as atmospheric air, water resources, land, and specific ecosystems.
