The official delegation of the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Conference of the Parties struggled for determining Kazakhstan’s status as party included in Annex B to the Kyoto Protocol.
We have worked heavily for many years to achieve this result.
Kazakhstan has developed low carbon policy reforms within the country.
Our position has found understanding among Parties and civil society in all previous Conferences of the Parties. We explained our position on the numerous of side-events, during bilateral talks and at the meetings of working bodies of Kyoto protocol and the Convention.
Unfortunately, Kazakhstan as a country expressed its interest in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at the national level has not understood by EU negotiators who were the main opponents to the Kazakhstan’s proposal.

SECOND ROUND OF WORKSHOPS: BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY CAPABILITY IN KAZAKHSTAN
Irbaris LLP with the support of Kazakhstan’s Climate Change Coordination Centre (known as C4) is delivering a series of workshops to raise awareness of energy efficiency and accelerate the country’s progress towards a low carbon – high growth economy. The project – “Building Energy Efficiency Capability in Kazakhstan” – is funded by the UK Foreign Office through the British Embassy, Astana whose support is gratefully acknowledged.
In September 2009 Irbaris and C4, with the support of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, engaged with Kazakh business leaders in five different regions across the country in one day workshops to discuss overcoming barriers to the successful implementation of energy efficiency capacities. During each workshop, various examples of energy efficiency programmes from the international oil and gas, mining and manufacturing industries were presented together with some of the technological and operational solutions in use around the globe. Participants were encouraged to examine the business impact of current energy policies in Kazakhstan and the workshops provided an introduction to new energy legislation as well as the potential impact of the Kyoto Protocol on energy efficiency opportunities.
