Open seminar on ‘Energy Transition and Central Asia’, 17 January 2022


Despite Central Asia being one of the world’s most climatically vulnerable regions, there is a large literature gap related to energy transition and climate change impact and policy in the region. Local and international scholars have been liaising to bridge this knowledge gap. Therefore, the OSCE Academy, the Norwegian Institute of International affairs (NUPI) and EUCAM are organizing an open workshop to present new research on energy transition and critical minerals in the region.
