The ‘Supporting Uzbekistan in Transition to a Low-Emission Development Path‘ project is helping Uzbekistan to transition to more sustainable energy use, promoting renewable energy use, promoting renewable energy use, assisting the Government in developing a low emission development strategy and mobilising resources for the strategy.
Uzbekistan possesses extensive reserves of fossil fuels. As a result, the country’s economic growth prior to independence coincided with rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, Uzbekistan has substantial renewable energy potential such as solar, wind, and biomass. These energy sources have been under-utilised. Moreover, farmers are not aware of opportunities to employ renewable energy technologies.
The project has assisted in developing the capacity to formulate and mobilise finance for and implement low-emission development strategies, offering support in fulfilling commitments under the UNFCCC to enable the country to make informed policy and investment decisions that reduce GHG emissions, reduce poverty, create new employment opportunities and move the country towards long term sustainability.
The recently-introduced concept of Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) could be operationalised and implemented through Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). NAMAS are international initiatives that help developing countries to deal with the challenges of climate change. Uzbekistan’s negotiation team needs coaching in regards to negotiation skills, and would benefit from regular information updates and new approaches for attracting finance.
