Kyrgyzstan President visits the Central Asia Pavilion at UNFCCC COP26 in Glasgow

November 1, 2021 – The President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Japarov, at the head of the delegation, visited the Central Asia Pavilion at UNFCCC COP26. 

Kyrgyzstan President Sadyr Japarov participates in the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Glasgow. On the first day of the international climate forum, Sadyr Japarov attended the Central Asia Pavilion that unites Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

“The Pavilion was opened for the first time in the history of the Conferences of Parties upon the request of five countries of Central Asia that asked for the COP 26 Pavilion during the Central Asia Climate Change Conference in July this year,” noted Zafar Makhmudov, the Executive Director of the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia.

Sadyr Japrov praised CAREC for opening the Central Asia Pavilion at UNFCCC COP26 where he held working meetings.

The joint pavilion provides Central Asian countries with a unique opportunity to demonstrate their investment potential, their role in the global climate process, their perspectives and current needs for financing, technologies and expertise.

It is also a unique opportunity to draw global attention to the high vulnerability of the region and the risks of climate migration, especially in the context of current geopolitical stability.

Central Asia Pavilion is organized by CAREC under financial support of the World Bank, OSCE, ERG, FAO and UNDP.
