Analytical Brief: Climate Change and the New Silk Road
This brief provides information on climate change in the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The brief specifically addresses regional commitments to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), mitigation and adaptation strategies, Central Asia’s CO2 emissions in key sectors, vulnerabilities and risks, and official development assistance and activities supporting climate-related development strategies.
To ensure successful results in integrating local solutions, USAID is strategically aligning the New Silk Road initiative with the UNFCCC’s country specific Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC), which aim to address climate change concerns.
The countries covered in this brief are rich in natural resources such as oil, gas, and water. To secure a sustainable future for these resources and the people dependent on them, Central Asian countries must address threats to the resilience and productivity of natural resources, socio-economic systems, and human health posed by the adverse effects of climate change.
