COP27 Side Event: Regional cooperation on climate action transparency in the Central Asian region

4 November 2022

11 November 2022 | 13:30-15:00 (Egypt) | Venue: Tajikistan Pavilion

Co-hosted by ICAT and the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Programme

The Regional Climate Action Transparency Hub is an ICAT project that supports countries in developing their capacity to build and manage a robust, transparent framework that enables them to effectively implement the Paris Agreement. To this end, ICAT has created a toolkit with transparency modeling methodologies and tools that can be adapted to countries’ needs. Activities include direct support to countries and the establishment of regional hubs and networks, such as the Regional Climate Action Transparency Hub for Central Asia.

Addressing the climate change problem involves the implementation of mitigation and adaptation activities. Thus, Central Asian countries should integrate climate change into all national planning tools; strengthen institutional coordination and technical capacity with respect to climate change policy development; and implement activities in relevant sectors, addressing data gaps and improving methodologies for assessing impacts on agriculture and related sectors, and collecting accurate and up-to-date information to create and regularly update databases on greenhouse gas emissions.

The Hub will adopt and implement a collaborative approach that will bring together the five Central Asian states (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) and support technical experts and expert institutions in the region to build sustainable and integrated Measurement, Reporting, Verification (MRV)/transparency systems.

During the preliminary negotiations at the project initiation stage, the five above-mentioned Central Asian states identified the following areas of cooperation as important:

  1. Application of methodologies, tools and development of an approach to climate action monitoring in several sectors, including stakeholder consultations, institutional capacity, reporting mechanisms and processes, data systems and tools;
  2. Regional dialogue and exchange of experiences through trainings on transparency and transparency and facilitating regional exchange of knowledge on best practices and lessons learned.



Important objectives of this meeting are to increase stakeholder involvement in the decision-making process, including raising awareness of civil society’s position on climate change transparency, ensuring awareness of the Hub’s actions.

In particular, the following topics will be presented:

  • Presentation of a gap and needs analysis of countries in the Central Asia region, prepared by CAREC together with the project’s technical partner, the international Greenhouse Gas Management Institute;
  • Presentation of the work plan and further joint actions to implement the project;
  • Project activities and other capacity building opportunities;
  • Statement from civil society on joint efforts by Central Asian countries to combat climate change.


The event will be conducted in Russian and English with simultaneous interpretation.
