Economics of Climate Change Mitigation in Central and West Asia


May 5, 2017
The ecological complexity of the Central and West Asian region gives way to diverse ecosystems with rich natural resources and hydrocarbon reserves; countries in this region are not only exposed to climate change risks, but there is growing recognition that their carbon-intensive economies necessitate reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with global efforts to mitigate climate change.

This report provides an assessment of the costs, benefits, and investment opportunities for GHG abatement in the energy and transport sectors of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.

The report was adapted from analysis undertaken by Abt Global in association with the Stockholm Environment Institute under the regional technical assistance (TA) for Economics of Climate Change in Central and West Asia, TA8119-REG.
