2.2 Maria Kolesnikova, Director of MoveGreen in Kyrgyzstan

This week we turn our attention to Kyrgyzstan. We speak with Maria Kohesnikova, the director of MoveGreen, a youth environmental movement in the capital city of Bishkek, about the current status of air pollution in the country of Kyrgyzstan. In Kyrgyzstan, it is not possible for civil society representatives to analyze the exhaust emitted from coal-powered power plants. Having an independent group of experts inspecting power plants would not only reveal the chemical emission levels but could also provide necessary feedback for plants to run cleaner and more efficiently. Learn more about this and other topics by listening along! Subjects by time: 0:36 Main causes of pollution in Bishkek 2:00 Car and fuel quality regulations 2:35 Bishkek PM2.5 levels in comparison 5:26 Negative effects of pollution 7:40 2018 and 2019 heating seasons and clean air standards 9:05 Less cars due to COVID-19 and the new data 11:24 Government measures against air pollution 14:40 Adapting measures e.g. plant inspections, building insulation standards, public transport, fuel euro standards 20:40 Civic space and raising awareness 24:44 Playing with air pollution data
