In December 2023, in Dubai (UAE), Central Asia participated in the UNFCCC COP28 and the Central Asian Pavilion, united under the slogan “5 countries - 1 region - 1 voice”.
The Central Asian countries demonstrated solidarity in combatting climate change, talked about the national priorities of each country and its position in the negotiation process and identified the common interests of the region at the UNFCCC COP28.
The Pavilion “5 countries – 1 region – 1 voice” provided Central Asian countries with a unique opportunity to show their investment potential, role in the global climate process, prospects and existing needs for financing, technology and expertise.
Central Asia Pavilion “5 countries – 1 region – 1 voice” was organized by the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC) in cooperation with the Governments of Central Asian countries under financial support of the GIZ, OSCE, the World Bank, USAID, the European Union, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
