Carbon Neutrality in the UNECE Region

Carbon Neutrality in the UNECE Region

Fossil fuels provide 95% of the energy supply in the five countries of Central Asia - Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

To meet commitments to reduce emissions and transition to a low-carbon economy, states need to make a massive energy transition. This is stated in a new report by the Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

Under the baseline scenario (improving energy resilience through the use of traditional energy sources), the region will need to invest about $1.407 trillion between 2020 and 2050. At the same time, using the potential of renewable energy for the transition to a carbon neutral economy will entail a slight increase in total energy investment by 2.15%, to $1.437 trillion.
