Mr. Turakul Murodov, Head of the Center for Implementation of Investment Projects of the Committee for Environmental Protection under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan, noted about the Government’s efforts towards adaptation to climate change. A particular example is the adoption of the Strategy of Adaptation to Climate Change that determines national goals and targets, which would facilitate the achievement of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
Having highlighted the role of private sector, which is the cornerstone for effective implementation of national adaptation measures in all three countries, the participants noted the need to develop monitoring, oversight and reporting system, which currently does not exist in the majority of the private sector, and in some cases is not yet developed at the national level.
In conclusion of the event, the participants expressed their interest in continuation of these important discussions with involvement of all economic entities and articulated the need to establish a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience on climate change actions.
