Programme at a glance

In Turkmenistan, UNDP supports implementation of the country’s obligations under Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) and helps to integrate environmental concerns into national and sectoral plans and strategies; secure resources; and implement programmes that advance inclusive, sustainable development, and strengthen livelihoods at the national level.

UNDP Country Office works to strengthen national policy and laws and provide expertise to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable practices on energy efficiency, the use of renewables, urban development and household waste management. This involves working closely with the Government to pilot and scale up specific initiatives and technologies aimed at improving resilience to climate change-related risks, ensuring biodiversity conservation, sustainable land use and water management, and facilitating better preparedness for natural disasters.

We represent one of the biggest environment programmes in the country and remain the primary development agent for such international financial institutions as the Adaptation Fund (AF), Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). In line with Agenda 2030, we work with the local communities searching for sustainable solutions to the pressing needs and issues arising because of climate change.

Supporting the environmentally sustainable use of natural resources and contributing to effectiveness of economic processes and better quality of life of the population, until now, UNDP in Turkmenistan environment programme has embraced over 500,000 people and contributed to reduction of 1.6 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
