Credible statistical information can serve as a powerful tool for the Republic of
Kazakhstan to plan for, and monitor progress on, its transition to a green economy.
While available data by Kazakhstan's Committee on Statistics already provide some
useful information (e.g. investment and operational expenditures as a share of GDP
are 0.2% and 0.4% respectively, which remain low), further improvement in coverage,
granularity and quality of statistical information can better inform policy-making
on green economy transition. This report examines how Kazakhstan’s national statistical
system works and how it can be further improved to better measure and understand financial
flows that contribute to a green economy transition. The analysis also builds on a
range of relevant international and national initiatives on sustainable finance.
