National Engagement with the UNFCCC
UNITAR works with countries in Central Asia to promote understanding and convergence on climate change negotiating issues. In the past, UNITAR has worked in Tajikistan assisting policy makers to better understand and work with processes under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. A newly planned project would up-scale this work to the regional level. Main elements of the proposed project include: advocacy and public outreach; cross government training and skills development for policy makers; a forum for strengthened and multi-country climate change diplomacy and alignment in Central Asia; and organization of a regional event on GHG emissions pledging in 2015.
