The Green Economy challenge in an oil-abundant country: experience from Azerbaijan
Dialogue 2: Building a green economy in an oil- and gas-producing country (24-26 November 2011, Astana, Kazakhstan)
The Green Economy concept is gaining currency globally, and is embedded in the Government of Kazakhstan’s Green Bridge programme, which emphasizes low-carbon development and ‘greening’ of industry and technologies. In preparation for Rio+20, the Government of Kazakhstan aims to integrate this programme into the mainstream economy and develop energy projects that correspond both to core business and Green Economy principles.
