Climate Change and Environment

Uzbekistan’s climatic and geographic features, and its unique ecosystems which are home to globally significant flora and fauna, have made environmental sustainability a national priority. Given rapid economic development in recent years, Uzbekistan recognises the need to balance economic growth and environmental protection. Therefore, a major national objective is to ensure that Uzbekistan’s environment is effectively protected and sustainably utilised for the benefit of future generations. Through capacity building and piloting initiatives, UNDP has contributed to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal 7 and corresponding national MDG targets.

Scope

UNDP’s Environment and Energy Unit works in collaboration with national and international partners to strengthen environmental governance, to build institutional and individual capacities to mitigate anticipated climate change impacts, to mainstream biodiversity conservation principles into sectorial policies and programmes, and to promote renewable energy and sustainable use of land and water resources. UNDP works at policy and community levels to promote best local and international practices in the field of environment and energy in Uzbekistan.
