Turkmenistan together with Central Asian countries prepares to the 27th United Nations Climate Change conference

Turkmenistan, like other Central Asian countries, participated in the discussion of preparation issues for the 27th Conference of the parties to the UNFCCC (COP27), which is scheduled to be held this year in Sharm-el-Sheikh from 8 to 18 November.

Discussion of preparations for the Conference was held on April 13 in Bishkek. The representatives of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan participated in the meeting. The representation of the Central Asian region at COP-27 was considered by the participants of the meeting as a key issue.

The UN Climate Change Conference is one of the most significant international forums for countering climate challenges.

At COP-27, the countries of Central Asia intend to announce their national plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, previously considered at the regional conference “Central Asian dialogue on readiness for climate finance through interaction and partnership”.

Zafar Mahmudov - Executive Director of the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia (CAREC):

“Central Asia is a region of opportunity and a key player in the global fight against climate change. Over the last 20 years, countries have significantly improved environmental legislation, strategic planning and introduced innovative technologies. All this reveals a huge potential for the exchange of experience and building a mutually beneficial partnership.”

It is expected, that at COP-27 the Central Asian countries will work in their own Pavilion and demonstrate the readiness of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to cooperate with the international community as a single region, that has united its efforts in countering climate change and turning its challenges into opportunities to create more sustainable future.

At the same time, the Central Asian countries intend to promote the idea of unity in solving climate problems not only at the regional, but also at the international level.

In order to prepare for COP-27 in the near future, the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia will organize the Central Asian Conference on Climate Change in Dushanbe, which will become a regional platform for the exchange of views and the development of a common strategic position, according to a press release from CAREC.
