Green Economy and Ecological Civilization in Central Asia, Mongolia and China

Delegates from China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan met in Beijing in June for a high-level workshop on UNEP’s Green Economy and China’s Ecological Civilization approaches.

The event follows a fellowship programme aimed at building capacity among research fellows for a Green Economy scoping report for Central Asia, whose production will be led by international expert Dr. John Shilling.

The two-day workshop, which took place on 11 and 12 June, also brought together experts from UNEP, the United Nations Development Programme, the Global Green Growth Institute and other international organizations to facilitate a dialogue on the development of a ‘Green Silk Road’ that strengthens the sub-region’s transition to an inclusive Green Economy.

During the event, government officials, researchers and international experts shared information about their own national Inclusive Green Economy and sustainable development practices, and discussed opportunities for sub-regional cooperation. China’s implementation of its own Ecological Civilization approach was shared as an example that holds valuable lessons for other countries in the region.

This workshop took place within the framework of the UNEP project entitled ‘South-South Cooperation in Mongolia and Central Asia Countries: Sharing Knowledge on Inclusive Green Economies and Ecological Civilization’. As part of the project, researchers from China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have spent six-weeks in a research fellowship programme at Beijing Normal University.

The high-level workshop marks the end of the six week fellowship programme, during which the research fellows have attended seminars and lectures with Chinese experts and visited various relevant organizations, institutions, and field sites, in addition to carrying out their research work under the guidance of Dr. Shilling.
