E&E - 117/119 Report - Kazakhstan A two-person team consisting of Raymond Carl Daviesson and Dr. Galina Fet visited Kazakhstan from April 10 through May 2, 2000. During this period, they visited Almaty, Astana, Pavlodar, and Kokchetau. Mr. Daviesson and Dr. Fet were assisted by local biodiversity specialists Iskandar Mirkhashimov and Igor Glukhovtsev. During the team’s second stay in Kazakhstan (June 25 through July 6, 2000), Dr. Fet attended the second meeting of the Biodiversity Thematic Group of the Caspian Environmental Program in Almaty. Mr. Daviesson, joined by Spike Millington, traveled to Aktau and Aterau to assess the ecological conditions of the north Caspian, with particular attention to the recent die-off in the Caspian seal population. (Their findings and recommendations regarding the seals have been documented and presented to the Mission under separate cover.) The approach used in this assessment was to collect and analyze information on biodiversity and related areas through documentation searches and interviews with key individuals and organizations concerned with biodiversity, both throughout Kazakhstan and in Washington, D.C. (see Annex C, List of Persons Contacted). An extensive series of field trips was undertaken.
