BACKGROUND

In

2005

the

UN Global Summit, hosted in Kobe, Japan, adopted Hyogo Framework for Action (FHA) for 2005
-
2015: “Building
r
esilience of
n
ations and
c
ommunities to
d
isasters”. This global
development
agenda includes
five priorit
ies

the
achiev
ement of
which is
urgent
for the
country itself

from one hand

and
found
s

a commitment
as
for

the
member
-
state of this global agenda

from the other hand
.

The United Nations determined Hyogo Framework for Action as a priority w
ithin
the
International Strategy for
Disaster Reduction

(ISDR)
,
of which
UNDP is a key participant in implementation.

Within the framework of UNDP “Effective Disaster Risk Management for Sustainable Human development and
Security” Programme there has been planned t
he creation of the national registry of hazards of landslides f
or
the purposes of implementing the second priority
area
of HFA (knowledge about risks and implementation of
necessary activities).
Available to date outdated data on hazards of landslide was f
ormed during Soviet times
(1990
-
s) which requires now updating
for adequate risk assessment and decision making. Updated register of
landslide hazards will become as an intergral part of
“Information and knowledge management”
1
, which is
one
of

five
components of the

“National risk assessment system”
.
On its turn, the “Information and knowledge
management” encompasses the following sub
-
components as “
Disaster risk information e
-
L
ibrary

,


National
Spatial Data Infrastructure
, “
National Risk Informatio
n System



and others. Therefore, updated regist
e
r on
landslide hazards, as part of “E
-
library

will

promote a
n evidence
-
based risk profiles for further decision
-
making
and capacity building
.


Within the

implementation of this Terms of Reference (TOR), updating of outdated regist
e
r on landslide hazards
will be accomplished on the territory of Alay district of Osh province, which is one of the most exposed
to the
risks of landslides. The scope of work of t
his TOR will have a synergetic effect since the Ministry of Emergency
Situations

(MES)

will update the data of landslide hazards in Uzgen district of Osh province and the World Bank
creates
the

National disaster risk data p
latform” at the national level.
Moreover, the updating of regist
e
r is
being implemented as a follow up of
“Disaster risk assessment and information management” National
workshop’s outputs, held in Bishkek on April 5
-
11, 2013 through the technical support of Global Risk
Identification Pro
gramme

(Geneva)

of Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery of UNDP

(NY)
.






For these purposes UNDP Programme is providing assistance to
the Department of MES
on
Monitoring and
Forecasting
of Hazardous Processes and Phenomena
in carrying out scient
ific
-
research works to
wards

study
ing

hazardous natural phenomena in

order

to

establish a database on landslides and landslide
-
prone areas.

OBJECTIVE


Main objective of this Terms of Reference is to
update registry of hazards on

landslide and landslide
-
prone areas
on the territory of Alay district

of
Osh

province of the

Kyrgyz Republic
.





1

Five components of National risk assessment framework according to Global Risk Identification Programme: i) governance and co
ordination ii)
policy and
decision making iii) information and knowledge management iv) evidence
-
based disaster risk profiles v) c
apacity building and institutionalization
