16-17 May 2023, Dushanbe, Tajikistan
During a two-day-conference in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, the World Bank organises an international networking and know-how exchange on the climate change impacts and the transition development in Central Asia.
Central Asia is particularly vulnerable to the negative impacts of a rapidly changing climate—it is an arid, landlocked, snow-fed region with most of its water originating in glaciers of upstream mountains and neighbouring countries that has a largely agrarian economy, aging infrastructure, and high population growth. Although the countries of the region – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan – have distinct landscapes, natural climatic conditions, development priorities, and the transboundary nature of climate change exposes each Central Asian nation with novel risks.
The conference is addressing these risks which governments in the region and their development partners will need tackle.
