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.
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.
