Regional cooperation

Our region is highly vulnerable to various impacts of climate change. The tragedy of the Aral Sea, the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, the melting of glaciers and desertification threaten not only Kazakhstan and the Central Asian region, but the whole world. Despite Kazakhstan's dependence on fossil fuels, we are determined to fulfil our obligations under the Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
