The final stakeholder workshop of the UNDP-UNECE joint project "Promoting Cooperation to Adapt to Climate Change in the Chu and Talas Transboundary Basin” was jointly organized by UNECE and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
This workshop was one of the final steps before completion of this project which has been implemented from 2010 to 2013 in the framework of the Environment and Security Initiative (ENVSEC). The project is part of the UNECE's programme of pilot projects on climate change adaptation in transboundary basins”, and has involved both Kazakh and Kyrgyz experts.
The project has resulted in a transboundary climate change impact and vulnerability assessment as well as proposals for possible adaptation measures, with a focus on the transboundary level.
The workshop aims to present and discuss the main project findings, consider linkages with the latest developments in climate policy in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyz Republic, and discuss their implications for adaptation in the countries and for the Chu Talas Commission, as well as need for further work and cooperation.
