On 4 July 2023, an individual consultant selection panel selected candidates to facilitate a regional NGO and youth dialogue on climate change in Central Asia to develop a joint Statement of  civil society for the 28th Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP28) within the project “Strengthening coordination and positioning of Central Asia in global climate processes” funded by GIZ and implemented by the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC). 

By the decision of the competition commission, a candidate, Ms Svetlana Mogilyuk, was selected as the Individual Consultant. She will work closely with the national representatives of the Climate Network of Non-Governmental Organizations in Central Asia and youth associations to formulate a comprehensive joint Statement of civil society in Central Asia, representing the position of NGOs and youth.

The regional Statement of civil society in Central Asia is expected to be presented at the forthcoming UNFCCC COP28 (Dubai, UAE) to reflect the collective voice and aspirations of the non-governmental sector and the youth of the Central Asian region to advance a climate-resilient future.

Brief Project info

The annual UNFCCC Conference of Parties is the world’s largest multilateral platform for dialogue on climate change. Every year about 10-15 thousand high-ranking delegates and visitors take part in its work. The conference not only makes key decisions on global climate change policy but also helps raise global awareness of the latest scientific findings and discussions on climate change.

In 2023, the CAREC received support from GIZ under the project “Strengthening coordination and positioning of Central Asia in global climate processes” to help Central Asian countries prepare for participation in UNFCCC COP28. One of the key activities of the project is further strengthening the joint voice of Central Asian civil society, including a vision of both non-governmental organizations and representatives of the youth movement. This work is carried out in close cooperation with members of the Climate Network of Non-Governmental Organizations in Central Asia, youth and other stakeholders.

The joint statement of the Central Asian civil society will be presented at the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, which is a unique opportunity for Central Asian NGOs and youth to strengthen their voice and inform the international community about the region’s concerted efforts to contribute to the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement.
