  • Addressing Climate Change Risks to Farming Systems in Turkmenistan at National and Community Level The project aims at strengthening water management practices at both local and national levels in response to climate change-induced water scarcity risks that are increasingly affecting farming systems in Turkmenistan. It promotes enhancing local capacities for adapting water management to the changing climate and builds on successes and lessons learned of a previously implemented initiative on land management.

  • Improving Energy Efficiency in the Residential Building Sector of TurkmenistanThe project supports reducing greenhouse gas emissions by improving energy management and reducing energy consumption in the residential sector in Turkmenistan. In this project, UNDP partners with the State Corporation “Turkmengaz” with the financial support from the GEF to strengthen incentives and capacity to build highly energy-efficient buildings and mainstream energy efficient measures into state construction and housing policies and programmes so that these measures can be replicated in prototype buildings.

  • Climate Risk Management in TurkmenistanThe project aims to enhance the capacity of Turkmenistan to mitigate climate risks by strengthening the institutional, legal and technical capacities of key institutions in order to achieve a better understanding and awareness of climatic risks. The project supports increasing resilience of agricultural and livestock communities through more effective climate risk management assessment and risk information provision.

  • Strengthening the Management Effectiveness of the Protected Area System of TurkmenistanThe project supports creating the enabling environment for the establishment of a functional, effective and ecologically coherent system of protected areas for Turkmenistan. In particular, it aims to help the Government in consolidating and physically linking a number of proximate fragments of different categories of protected areas with unique biodiversity into a single, more cohesive management unit - a national park.

  • National Biodiversity Planning to Support the implementation of the CBD 2011-2020 Strategic Plan in TurkmenistanIn this project UNDP aims to support integration of Turkmenistan’s obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) into its national development and sectoral planning frameworks through renewed and participative biodiversity planning process.


Guided by the national environmental priorities, UNDP provides policy advice, project implementation and knowledge management services to support the development of Turkmenistan’s capacity for low emission and establishment of climate resilient communities, economies and ecosystems.
