“GREEN FINANCING FOR SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT AND BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION” INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Date: April 28, 2017

Venue: Hotel Ramada Almaty, Baitursynov street 27/1, Almaty, Kazakhstan

Organizer: "BIOFIN” project of the German Government, the Government of Switzerland, the EU and UNDP

Supported by:

Astana International Financial Centre Authority

Kazakhstan Association of oil-gas and energy sector organizations «KAZENERGY»

The event aims to create a dialogue platform for private sector involvement in biodiversity conservation and sustainable land use. We hope that during the conference we can find donors/investors for our projects.

To the date according to the results of research carried out within the BIOFIN project, lack of the funds for biodiversity conservation in the Republic of Kazakhstan is more than 50% of the annual allocated amount.

The BIOFIN project provides methodological support to countries in defining the political, institutional and financial aspects of the biodiversity conservation and resource mobilization through new economic mechanisms.

Participants: state bodies of Kazakhstan, mining companies, energy companies, national institutions, private investors (local and foreign).
