Climate Change Exposure

Overall, Kyrgyzstan is moderately- to highly exposed to climate change.  The provinces of Chuy, Jalal-Abad and Osh are the most exposed to climate change. The most important impacts are caused by additional heat and share of extreme precipitation, and the increased drought events that will occur in the southern part of the country.  Jalal-Abad and Osh provinces are exposed also to an increase in precipitation, which will almost certainly come in the form of heavy precipitation events. This exposure applies also for Batken. At the other end of the spectrum, the whole northern part of Kyrgyzstan is anticipated to experience a significant increase in the duration of drought spells, with up to 5 - 8 days per drought spell.

In addition to the above-mentioned climate exposure, other phenomena are occuring to Kyrgyzstan's climate which should be noted, such as a shift of season and a shift the elevation of temperature and precipitation.
