This report provides a detailed assessment of the costs, benefits, and investment opportunities for greenhouse gas abatement in the energy and transport sectors of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan, and provides an understanding of the indirect benefits to human health and energy security.
This report is intended for policymakers, practitioners, and academics, to provide an overview of policy measures and technologies available for emission reduction, as well as scenarios of future emission trajectories. The report finds that a significant amount of emissions reduction (against the businessas-usual case) can be achieved with little to no cost, and with significant co-benefits to health. In addition, accompanying the report’s output is a detailed custom-built model of the energy and transport sectors in each country, which has been distributed among stakeholders in each country for further development, analysis, and reporting on mitigation costs and options.
