Kazakhstan to present carbon neutrality doctrine at COP26

Kazakhstan will present its doctrine to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 at the upcoming United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Glasgow. The document includes measures to improve the energy efficiency of the country’s economy, electrification and large-scale use of renewable energy sources. The carbon neutral scenario should allow the country reducing emissions by 97-98 percent. Over the next 40 years, these goals will require over US$600 billion of investments with GDP growth by 50 percent by 2060. Kazakhstan’s Association of Environmental Organizations took an active part in the document’s development.

“The doctrine meets all the objectives that Kazakhstan has set, we support it. The implementation will be mainly through the Roadmap, which will define specifically who does what. Representatives of almost all countries of the world will take part in this summit. For the first time the countries of Central Asia unite to present or announce a common policy on decarbonization, which was discussed at a conference in Dushanbe, then at our forum that has recently been held in Turkistan,” said Aliya Baimaganova, Advisor to Chairperson of the Association of Environmental Organizations of Kazakhstan.
