COUNTRY PROFILE - KAZAKHSTAN


Kazakhstan, with a total area of just over 2.72 million km2, is the second largest country of the Former Soviet Union, after the Russian Federation, and the ninth largest country in the world (Table 1). It is bordered in the northwest and north by the Russian Federation, in the east by China, in the south by Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, and in the southwest by Turkmenistan and the Caspian Sea. It declared its independence from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in December 1991. For administrative purposes, the country is divided into 14 provinces (oblasts) – Akmola, Aktobe, Almaty, Atyrau, West Kazakhstan, Jambyl, Karagandy, Kostanai, Kyzylorda, Mangystau, South Kazakhstan, Pavlodar, North Kazakhstan, East Kazakhstan – and three cities (qalalar) – Almaty, Astana and Baykonyr (former Leninsk). In 1995, the governments of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation entered into an agreement whereby the Russian Federation would lease an area of 6 000 km2 enclosing the city of Baykonyr and its space launch facilities for 20 years. In 2004 a new agreement extended the lease to 2050 (CIA, 2011).
