UN Secretary-General António Guterres stressed on Friday that the success of the Dubai conference will depend on the results of the so-called “Global Inventory”, during which countries will assess for the first-time progress in curbing global warming in areas such as reducing emissions, accelerating the transition to renewable energy sources, and increasing funding.
The countries of Central Asia are making significant efforts to decarbonize and diversify the energy sector to achieve these goals. It will solve acute problems related to providing the population with affordable energy resources and reducing the anthropogenic impact on the environment.
At the same time, the sustainable and transit finance market contributes to the sustainable energy transition by providing funds for the implementation of projects that contribute to reducing the negative impact on the environment and creating the conditions for cleaner and more sustainable energy.
