A regional platform for climate action: The case of CAREC for the greater Central Asia region

30 November 2023

Summary

Climate change requires concerted action at global, regional, and country levels. Global action is guided by the Paris Agreement, while country-level action is pursued under national climate strategies, adaptation plans, and the nationally determined contributions prepared by national governments and implemented with international support. Recently, country platforms for climate action, viz. Just Energy Transition Partnerships, have been developed to promote national and international cooperation for funding and managing just energy transitions in heavily coal-dependent developing countries.
