European Union is one of the leading global actors promoting a sustainable management of natural resources and a green transition. The European Green Deal is the EU response action plan to address the challenges of the climate change and environmental degradation and make Europe the first climate-neutral continent. Many key actions are centered around water use and preservation.

“Water is precious resource – for live, for food, for energy production and for peace and stability. How we manage our scarce water resources will shape our world and the life of the next generation. I’m looking forward to discussing a broad range of topics here in Dushanbe in a very multilateral setting, with heads of states and international organizations, our Tajik hosts and regional interlocutors, experts and youth. It is an important step in preparation for next year’s UN Water Conference in New York”, Mr. Sinkevicius said on arrival.

The EU Delegation to Tajikistan says that during his visit, Commissioner Sinkevicius will address the Conference as well as the Youth and Central Asia Forums, hold meetings with Tajikistan representatives and international interlocutors and partners, witness EU-funded initiatives for environment, water, sustainability and cultural heritage.
