GREEN BRIDGE FORUM RIGA 2015

The Central Asian countries face major environmental challenges and are directly affected by climate change. They share similar constraints to water and energy resources. The EU-Central Asia Strategy highlights environmental and water management issues as one of key areas for intensified policy dialogue and enhanced cooperation between the EU and the Central Asia. The EU strategy for Central Asia and the Multi Annual Regional Indicative Programme for Central Asia (2014-2020) identify energy, environment and water as key areas for dialogue and cooperation between the EU and Central Asia. Latvia is willing to contribute to addressing these challenges by organising a high-level forum during its Presidency of the Council of the EU in the first half of 2015.

The main objective of the Green Bridge Forum is to strengthen environmental governance and enhance cooperation between the EU and Central Asian countries in water management, energy efficiency, renewable and alternative energies as well as in reliable, sustainable, low-carbon technologies, to facilitate green growth activities across the EU and Central Asia region.
