Dear visitors!

You are now on the page of the informational campaign under the project

Increasing awareness of the most problematic environmental issues in Central Asia



This project is implemented by the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia (CAREC) with the financial support of the European Union.

The aim of this informational campaign conducted by CARNet in partnership with CAREC in all five countries of Central Asia is to increase awareness about this project among all concerned parties, including environmental experts and specialists, representatives of environmental society, journalists, state servicemen and businessmen.

Concept

The Central Asian region, comprising Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan has a unique geographical location. Perched between Europe and Asia, the region bears high geopolitical importance. The CA states are highly vulnerable to changes in the ecosystems they share and depend on. The current environmental situation in CA calls for urgent solutions in water management, energy efficiency, environmental governance and integration.
Awareness raising in the above three areas is a key prerequisite for the required application and enforcement of environmental governance and is crucially linked to enhancing regional cooperation and partnership within the European Union and Central Asia Strategy for a New Partnership. The project will support and establish national and regional platforms: a Knowledge Platform for EU-CA Partnership, Green Business Club and Sustainability Award in Central Asia, and the Green Media network for multistakeholders cooperation, sharing of information and experiences in order to find new solutions, new ways of implementation, interaction and cooperation between the governments and other stakeholders for solving longstanding environmental problems in the region.

Goals

Increasing awareness on the most problematic environmental issues in water management, environmental governance and climate change to enhance regional and EU-CA cooperation and partnership .

Project methodology

Targeted activities on a selected number of prime environmental issues of immediate concern to the Central Asian region;
• Simultaneously addressing all three sectors of society, i.e. civil society, private- and public sector, thus creating synergies between all sectors of society ensuring a maximum leverage for the investments made; and
• Relating all awareness activities under the project to the ongoing EU initiatives in Central Asia.

The Project Components

• Increased awareness on return- and reused waters addressing gaps in water resources management;
• Enhanced opportunities for EU-CA cooperation on environmental governance through increased awareness on the most compatible and applicable practices such as Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS), etc;
• Increased private sector involvement by raising awareness on sustainable consumption and production (SCP), and energy efficiency (EE) as a gateway for Public-Private Partnership (PPP).

On this page you will find all information about the project activities published on CARNet website, including news, publications, photo reports, as well as press reviews, and links to ongoing discussions in the Internet, etc.
