Kazakhstan President: In 2017 the green zone of Astana to reach Borovoe

NEW YORK. KAZINFORM - The key findings of the IPCC's 5th Assessment Report on climate change adaptation and mitigation indicates that human impact on the global environment is intensifying and the risks of irreversible climatic change continue to grow, said Kazakhstan's Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov in his speech at the UN Climate Summit on September 23.
Idrissov informed the summit's participants that Kazakhstan is implementing national climate mitigation policies and measures, which are an important aspect of the country's long-term development plan, the Kazakhstan 2050 Strategy. At the heart of the strategy, unveiled last year by our President Nursultan Nazarbayev, is the bold ambition to join the world's 30 most developed states by 2050. Growing the green economy, promoting energy efficiency and driving the renewable energy sector are all central to fulfilling the goal, MFA reports.

"Though a major producer of conventional energy Kazakhstan is planning to achieve decreasing energy intensity of GDP by 50% by 2050 from the 2008 level; reducing current C02 emissions in electricity production by 40% by 2050; and increasing the share of non-conventional energy sources in the electricity production by 50% by 2050," he said.

Kazakh FM emphasized that Kazakhstan has launched its own domestic emissions trading scheme, which will reduce volumes of emissions and add real impetus to the state's efforts to move towards a low-carbon economy. The Government and business community of Kazakhstan would like to see increased cross-national cooperation in GHG mitigation. Kazakhstan also calls for the development of international principles to link national markets. He briefed on main objectives of upcoming Astana EXPO 2017 specialized exhibition.

"Kazakhstan has chosen the theme of "Future energy" for the Exhibition, which will serve as a catalyst for greater dialogue and collaborative solutions to energy challenges" told Idrissov.

Concluding his speech Erlan Idrissov has invited all UN member states to participate in the cross regional Green Bridge Partnership Program, which was supported in the Rio+20 outcome document "The Future We Want". The initiative aims to bring together governments, international organizations and private businesses to find and share solutions to sustainable growth through exploration and implementation of the latest and best green technologies and practices.
