Project Description

The proposed project involves expansion of Raduga tourist resort owned by Invest-Raduga Ltd. and located at Issyk-Kul Lake, Kyrgyz Republic.

The project is co-financed by Kazakh Temirbank.

Environmental Impact

Environmental Analysis paid specific attention to the Ramsar Wetland status of Lake Issyk-Kul (an international environmental convention to protect wetlands) as the project is located on the north shore of the lake. The environmental due diligence confirmed two key points: (1) the project is located in the specific zone of the Biosphere Zone where such development is allowed by Kyrgyz law; and (2) waste water treatment is a possible key issue associated with the project and the Sponsor already plans to expand the capacity of the existing waste water treatment facility that belongs to the project.

The Sponsor will be required to ensure that the project complies with national, EU and World Bank environmental, health and safety standards and requirements. To achieve that, the Sponsor is committed to identify and implement technical solutions for the expansion of the waste water treatment facility so that the treatment capacity will be sufficient enough to deal with an increase of waste water and corresponding increase of quantity of effluents without causing any environmental damages.

Technical Cooperation

Swiss Technical Cooperation funds have been used to finance market, technical and financial diligence (EUR 40K) for two construction projects in Kyrgyzstan, including this one.

Additional TC funds are sought for legal due diligence of the project.
