This report presents recommendations on the reform of economic instruments for water
resources management in Kyrgyzstan, specifically on tariffs for urban water supply
and sanitation (WSS) and irrigation water, pollution charges, surface water abstraction
charges for enterprises (consumptive and non-consumptive uses), specific land tax
rates for the Issyk-Kul biosphere reserve, as well as taxes and customs duty on products
contributing to water pollution. For each instrument, alternative reform options are
identified and assessed, and preferred options put forward, with an action plan.
