Appendix No. 1

to the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan of December 2, 2022 No. PP-436

The program for transition to "green" economy and ensuring "green" growth in the Republic of Uzbekistan till 2030

The problematic issues connected with climate change negatively influence efficiency of the reforms undertaken in the country, in particular the economic growth and reducing poverty, ensuring ecological and food security. Proceeding from it in the country in this direction much attention is paid to decrease in impact of climate change and adaptation to it, acceleration of measures for transition to "green" economy, promotion of "green" and inclusive model of economic growth.

With respect thereto for the purpose of stimulation of "green" economic growth in the country, rational use of natural resources, attraction of "green" investments, mitigation of negative impact of ecological crisis the resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan of October 5, 2019 No. PP-4477 approves the Strategy of transition of the Republic of Uzbekistan to "green" economy during 2019 - 2030.

Due to the epidemiological situation caused by coronavirus pandemic (COVID - 19) in 2020, the possibility of intensive realization of this Strategy was limited both in the Republic of Uzbekistan, and in the countries of the world.

At the same time at the 26th session of the Framework convention of the United Nations on climate change (COP26) which took place in November, 2021 within the Parisian agreement the Republic of Uzbekistan declared adoption of additional obligations on reducing by 2030 emissions of greenhouse gases per unit of gross domestic product for 35 percent in comparison with the level of 2010.

Also in May of the current year the Republic of Uzbekistan joined global initiative (Global Methan Pledge) of achievement of the collective purpose by the countries of reducing by 2030 of emissions of methane for 30 percent at least in comparison with 2020.

The lessons learned from the negative situations caused by pandemic of coronavirus and climate change show need of review of more steady resources and approaches when ensuring economic growth, in particular, to the effective organization of realization of strategic objectives and actions for "green" economy and "green" economic growth in the country.
