KAZAKHSTAN

JOINED PAGE in 2018

CONTEXT

The Republic of Kazakhstan joined PAGE in 2018 with the overall objective of achieving the ambitious targets set out in its National Development Strategy Kazakhstan 2050 and its Green Economy Concept, which serves as an IGE roadmap for the country and includes several ambitious targets, such as sourcing 50% of energy from renewables by 2050 and as much as 30% by 2030.

At the sectoral level, Kazakhstan aspires to become a regional hub for green finance, which would provide further support for the investments in Kazakhstan’s green economy. More generally, Kazakhstan seeks to promote economic diversification through the green economy, also taking account of the benefits of achieving inclusive growth.

PAGE activities will kick-off with a scoping mission in early 2019 in a process that will be led nationally by the Ministry of Energy, with close engagement from the Ministries of Healthcare, Agriculture, Industry and Development and National Economy.
