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.
To help promote transparency and good governance in the energy sector in the Caspian region, we carried out a series of dialogues in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. The aim was to bring industry, government and civil society stakeholders together to discuss key issues and develop plans for future action.
