Energy and Resource Efficiency as contribution to Green Economy in Kazakhstan
As of: September 2018
Objective and activities
The objective of the project is to support the government of Kazakhstan in building institutional and technical capacities for the implementation of the Green Economy Concept and thus also the NDC, and thereby creating positive spillover effects to the other Central Asian countries. In the first of three work packages, the project targets to advice decision makers from the Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of National Economy as well as other relevant governmental and nongovernmental partners in designing policy measures to put the Green Economy Concept into practice. Through adapted modeling, analyses on economic, environmental and social impacts of policy instruments are streamed into the inter-ministerial cooperation for the implementation of the Green Economy Concept. In the second field of action the dialogue with the private sector for the implementation of Green Economy policies, particularly in the fields of energy and resource efficiency shall be strengthened. This should lead to the incorporation of needs and potentials of the private sector into the design of policies, and that appropriate exemplary innovations are disseminated. In the third field of action those examples are used to raise awareness about the opportunities of Green Economy among various key stakeholder groups within Kazakhstan and its Central Asian neighbor countries.
