The Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia (CAREC) is holding a regional practical training on May 18-19, 2023 in Dushanbe on “Improving data collection and analytical tools for forecasting greenhouse gas emissions in Central Asian countries”.

The training is the final event of CACCC-2023, which took place in Dushanbe on May 16-17 this year.

The training attended by experts from Central Asian countries who are involved in the preparation of forecasts and modeling of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The analysis and forecast of greenhouse gas emissions is essential in the transition to a carbon neutral economy, as well as in reporting as part of countries' obligations under the Paris Agreement. Also, modeling is an important tool for tracking climate finance and its calculations when planning countries' budgets for climate action.

As CAREC Executive Director Zafar Makhmudov noted, Central Asia is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, especially in the energy, agriculture and transport sectors. According to the REdiCAP report, more than 80% of greenhouse gas emissions in Central Asia come from energy production and consumption. At the same time, Central Asia has great potential to transition to a low-carbon economy based on the use of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, waste reduction and sustainable agriculture.

Realization of this potential is possible if there is clear data on the current level and dynamics of greenhouse gas emissions in the region and on possible scenarios for their change in the future, depending on various factors, such as economic growth, demographic changes, technological progress and political decisions.

The training is led by Aleksei Sankovski, GHGMI GHG forecasting expert.


General information about the project 

The ReCATH project is an implementation of the Climate Action Transparency Initiative (ICAT), which supports countries in developing their capacity to create and manage a robust transparent framework that enables them to effectively implement the Paris Agreement. To this end, ICAT has created a toolkit with methodologies and transparency modeling tools that can be adapted to country needs. Activities include direct support to countries and the establishment of regional support centers and networks, such as the Climate Action Transparency Center for Central Asian countries.
