Regional Office for Asia Pacific - Promoting Clean Energy Technologies in Central Asia

UNEP collaborates with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to facilitate the transfer of clean energy technologies and the development of markets for these technologies in Central Asian countries through improved policies and regulations, development of national clean technology action plans, and the establishment of energy performance standards.

UNEP works with climate change focal points in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan to address barriers to and facilitate the transfer of clean energy. The project strengthens capacity, improves institutions and national level networking to raise awareness on climate change and its potential impact and barriers for the uptake of clean energy technologies. The project is coordinated by the Interstate Sustainable Development Commission and the Ministry of Nature Protection with financial support from KOICA.
