What is a sustainable city? Interview with Alexei Zakharov, UNDP/GEF project advisor on Sustainable Cities
An ideal sustainable city is the one that has zero carbon emission footprint on the Planet’s wellbeing. That means the city generates energy for its needs from renewable sources, such as hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, and biomass, and deposits zero non-recyclable waste into the environment.
UNDP/GEF project provided legal support to Karyahan apa extending her lease agreement to 10 years, according to the Land Code of Turkmenistan. She can now enjoy growing fruit trees and expect good harvest to sell in the local market which will ensure sustainable income for her family.
UNDP is a long-term, well-known and fully-trusted partner of the Government of Turkmenistan. Since 1995, we have supported the national development agenda with cutting-edge technology, global best practices and innovative solutions.
