Can the oil and gas industry become a green economy leader?
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.
IIED’s Caspian Energy Initiative aims to promote transparency and good governance in the energy sector. We have just completed the latest phase of this initiative – a series of dialogues in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. The aim of these dialogues was to bring industry, government and civil society stakeholders together to discuss key issues and develop plans for future action. Background papers and workshop reports are available below.
