The National Admission Test (NAT) is one of the largest projects in the country working against corruption in the education sector. The project is aimed at providing equal and fair access to higher education through transparent and independent testing. Since 2002, the NAT has partnered with the Ministry of Education and Science and is administered by the Center for Educational Assessment and Teaching Methods (CEATM), an independent testing organization. The management of the national testing program by an independent professional organization has been one of its strengths and is a key to the testing results being recognized as merit-based and transparent.

The program was implemented by the USAID Kyrgyz Agro-Input Enterprise Development (KAED) project in close cooperation with the Kyrgyz Republic’s Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation. The U.S. government provided a $20 million grant under the EDF in three phases to support the Kyrgyz government’s efforts to boost agricultural productivity.

The fundamental objective of this collaborative study is to develop a thorough and systematic assessment of the contribution of both seasonal snow and glaciers to the water resources originating across the Himalaya, Karakoram, Hindu Kush, Pamir and Tien Shan mountain ranges, referred to here as High Asia. These mountain ranges are located within the countries of Bhutan, Nepal, China, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. These countries, containing the headwaters of the Brahmaputra, Ganges, Indus, Syr Darya and Amu Darya rivers, all possess significant snow and ice resources. The amount, timing and spatial patterns of snow and ice melt play key roles in providing water for downstream irrigation, hydropower generation and general consumption. Water security in such high-altitude regions of the world is par-ticularly sensitive to climate change because of the significant role of snow and glaciers.
