On February 15, 2018 the Scientific Research and Education Center “Green Academy” jointly with Akimat of Astana city with the support of Representations of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Kazakhstan and Asian Development Bank will conduct the workshop of the theme “Methodology and mechanisms for transition of Astana city to low-carbon development”.

The aim of the event is public awareness about process of development of the Low-Carbon Development Strategy of Astana city (LCDSA) and mechanisms for its implementation under the Paris Climate Agreement.

Heads and representatives of central and local state bodies, international organizations, domestic business, members of the Working Group of the Akimat of Astana city on developing a low-carbon development strategy, non-governmental organizations, scientists and experts will be invited to the workshop.

As is known, in order to fight with the climate change and to implement the Paris Climate Agreement, there are operating the international “Initiative C40” (“C40 Cities Climate Group Leadership”) whose purpose is reducing emissions by 50% by 2050, and acting since 2008 European Union initiative “The Mayors Agreement” (the goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020). In 2013, 9 cities of Kazakhstan including Astana joined the “Agreement of the Mayors”. According to experts, the main tasks in fighting with climate change are adaptation of new tools for assessing the city’s carbon potential and developing practical measures to mitigate climate risks.
