SIPA work in Uzbekistan

As Uzbekistan develops long-term development strategies, there is a unique opportunity to help direct investments towards energy, transport and industry infrastructure projects that support connectivity, economic growth and job creation in the short term and assist the transition towards an economic model compatible with the Paris Agreement and the SDGs in the long term.

SIPA’s activities in Uzbekistan related to infrastructure planning and evaluation include support to develop a whole-of-economy low-carbon strategy to complement its low-carbon development strategy in the energy sector (implemented by IDDRI) as well as a pilot multidimensional assessment of a major infrastructure project (IISD). Sectoral work in Uzbekistan focuses on fossil-fuel subsidy reform (IISD), developing a low-carbon transport strategy for the city of Tashkent (ITF), decarbonisation strategies for high-impact industries (OECD) and a regional study on improving low-carbon transport and logistics connectivity (ITF). SIPA includes an array of capacity development activities, including to promote responsible business conduct (RBC) and due diligence (OECD).
