Launch of EU SWITCH-Asia Programme in Central Asia, Supporting Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP)
On Friday, 5 July 2019, EU SWITCH-Asia will be launched in Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek, at the Orion Hotel, to introduce the programme in Central Asia, discuss challenges and opportunities related to SCP and define its work plan for Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan for the next years.
The event will be co-organized by the SWITCH-Asia SCP Facility, the European Commission, Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), and concerned European Union Delegations. Representatives of national governments, EU Delegations, United Nations agencies, and key stakeholders (business, academia, NGOs, MSMEs, among others) will contribute to the interactive discussions on the importance and necessity for promoting SCP patterns in Central Asia, in order to support the five targeted countries’ transition towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient and circular economy.
