"State of Climate Awareness in Uzbekistan" survey launch

Uzbekistan has increasingly grappled with the effects of climate change in recent decades. Droughts, water scarcity, soil degradation, heatwaves, and other phenomena pose significant challenges to the nation. These vulnerabilities impact not only the populace and local ecosystems, but also the economy and businesses.

To gauge how the local business community perceives climate change, Chapter Zero Uzbekistan is conducting a study titled "State of Climate Awareness in Uzbekistan". This survey targets business leaders from various economic sectors in Uzbekistan, examining practices, issues, and challenges related to climate change in business. The survey aims to shed light on obstacles to a sustainable and low-carbon future in Uzbekistan and help identify climate-related matters where local business leaders require support.

Founded in 2023 under the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI), in collaboration with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and support from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Chapter Zero Uzbekistan is hosted by Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT).

Chapter Zero Uzbekistan's goal is to assist the business community in pursuing sustainable development and environmental stewardship. This is the first strategic initiative in Central Asia aimed at facilitating the integration of climate risk into business and investment decisions, promoting efficient capital allocation and a smooth transition to a low-carbon economy.
