Central Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions to the impacts of climate change, and the climate crisis is emerging as a critical risk for national and regional security.
On 16 June 2022 in Almaty, the countries of Central Asia, their development partners and private-sector representatives met to discuss practical approaches to enhance regional and cross-sectoral co-operation towards climate, energy, water and food security in the region.
The OECD, in partnership with the Ministry of Ecology, Geology and Natural Resources of Kazakhstan, organised the second high-level policy dialogue on the Energy, Water and Land-use Nexus in Central Asia. The OECD, EBRD, FAO, SIC ICWC and UNECE presented a roadmap to make their contribution to the region’s climate and natural resource security through the new project, Energy-Water-Land use Nexus Transformation in Central Asia.
