COP26. NDC of Uzbekistan

Glasgow, UK, 10 November 2021 – The side-event “Nationally Determined Contribution of Uzbekistan” took place in online and offline format at COP26 Central Asia Pavilion “5 countries-1 region-1 voice”. 

The event was organized in partnership with the Center of the Hydrometeorological Service of the Republic of Uzbekistan (Uzhydromet), UNDP Uzbekistan, State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Ecology and Environmental Protection, Ministry of Economic Development and Poverty Reduction of the Republic of Uzbekistan. 

Ibratzhon Karimov, the Deputy Director-General of Uzhydromet, praised the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia for the organization of the Central Asia Pavilion. He noted Central Asia is most vulnerable to climate change. In the last century, the average annual temperature of Uzbekistan increased by 2 C° higher than the global temperature rise. They forecast extreme temperature increase in the Aral Sea region, Karakalpakstan and Khorezm region of Uzbekistan. The Aral Sea drying out causes specific climate change. 

The participants of the side-event got information about the updated NDSC of Uzbekistan. Reportedly, the climate change pace for 20-30 years in the region will depend on measures taken by all countries of Central Asia following UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement. 

Uzbekistan presented information on taken measures and future actions to mitigate climate change, including national strategies. 

Central Asia Pavilion is organized by CAREC in cooperation with EC IFAS and IGTIPC under financial support of the World Bank, OSCE, ERG, FAO and UNDP.
