Opportunities for Climate Resilience and Energy Transition in Uzbekistan
This virtual panel event will act as an opportunity for UK-based organisations and investors to learn about current climate remediation and energy transition opportunities in Uzbekistan. The event will also provide a platform for members of the British Expertise International Climate Change working group to share knowledge and explore synergies around some of the market leading solutions being developed to support climate change resilience & adap
British Expertise International is delighted to be joined by Uzbekistan’s Deputy Minister for Energy, the Ambassador of Uzbekistan to the United Kingdom, and regional representatives of the Asian Development Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, for the latest overview of Uzbekistan’s strategy on climate resilience and energy transition, and the pipeline of climate and green energy opportunities in the country. The panel will discuss priorities, plans and successes in climate change resilience & adaptation and development of green/alternative energy systems, and highlight what policy makers and development banks are doing in Uzbekistan to support energy transition and climate change mitigation.
Uzbekistan is susceptible to a range of climate hazards, such as drought, high temperatures, heat waves, heavy precipitation, mudflows, floods and avalanches. One of the biggest issues facing the country is management of water resources and the challenges around securing water for agriculture and a rapidly increasing population. There is also a need to support energy efficiency and transition towards net zero through the development of, and investment in, alternative energy systems.
This event will provide an overview of some of these complex issues, alongside information and contacts that can support UK organisations and investors in accessing specific opportunities in Uzbekistan.
