About the Policy Dialogues

Kazakhstan made a bold leap forward on a newly charted course for the country's development by adopting The Strategy on Achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2060. Approved by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan on February 2, 2023, the strategy sets ambitious net-zero carbon goals for climate action and identifies key technological transformations needed for the country's decarbonization. To achieve these transformations, the country will require determining and implementing effective and targeted policies and programs across the whole of the country's economy.

The Republic of Kazakhstan Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, the Ministry of National Economy, the World Bank and ECOJER have launched a series of policy dialogues, Achieving Carbon Neutrality and Building Resilience in Kazakhstan. The policy dialogues aim to support Kazakhstan in implementing its critical climate and environmental strategies, including the low-carbon transition, air quality management, and resilience to climate change, by convening and providing a space for public discussion of Kazakhstan's progress towards achieving climate change commitments and accelerating the decarbonization transition.
