He also noted that jointly with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the preparatory work is carried out on the implementation of two major projects on preserving the ozone layer. 

The President has voiced the feasibility of working out a UN Strategy aimed at the implementation of measures for the development of low carbon energy and proposed to prepare an International Roadmap under the UN auspices on the development of hydrogen as one of the priorities in the energy field.   

The current meeting of high level was convened by the UN Secretary General and has completed the series of roundtables held in the recent months by the UN regional economic commissions in the framework of the “Financing for the Development in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond Initiative” (FFDI).


25 мая 2021 года Президент Туркменистана Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов выступил на Глобальном «круглом столе» высокого уровня по преобразованию добывающей промышленности для устойчивого развития. Мероприятие прошло в формате видеоконференции под председательством Генерального секретаря ООН Антониу Гутерриша.

На встрече приняли участие главы государств и правительств, министры, руководители крупных международных организаций, эксперты академических кругов и аналитических центров, представители частного сектора и гражданского общества.

Проведение круглого стола было нацелено на определение конкретных действий и рекомендаций, которые могут быть реализованы на глобальном, региональном и национальном уровнях, для решения проблем, связанных с изменением климата, негативно влияющих на реализацию «Повестки дня на период до 2030 года».

В своём выступлении Президент Туркменистана Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов поблагодарил Генерального секретаря ООН за приглашение принять участие в глобальном форуме и подчеркнул, что Туркменистан, полностью разделяя озабоченность в связи с негативным воздействием промышленных выбросов в окружающую среду, последовательно выступает за тесную координацию международных усилий, направленных на минимизацию существующих рисков и вызовов.

«Убеждены, что ключевым фактором здесь должна быть неуклонная и всеобщая приверженность Парижскому соглашению по изменению климата» - отметил Президент. Он добавил, что присоединившись к этому фундаментальному документу, Туркменистан активно взял курс на предметное сотрудничество с ООН, другими специализированными международными структурами по его повсеместной имплементации.

Президент Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов отметил принятие в 2019 году новой редакции Национальной стратегии Туркменистана об изменении климата, что обеспечило все необходимые правовые, организационные и технологические условия для выполнения экологических задач. Глава государства отметил, что в Туркменистане широко внедряются адаптационные меры по восстановлению лесов и улучшению землепользования для смягчения климатических воздействий. В рамках Общенациональной программы озеленения «Зелёный пояс» созданы обширные лесные полосы с использованием прогрессивных водосберегающих методов полива. Только в этом году в стране планируется высадить дополнительно 30 миллионов саженцев.

В течение последних лет неуклонно снижается углеродоёмкость производимой в Туркменистане продукции. В подтверждение тому Президент Туркменистана привёл конкретные показатели.

Говоря о международных инициативах государства по формированию новой архитектуры глобальной энергетической безопасности, обеспечению широкого доступа для всех к недорогим, надёжным, современным источникам энергии, Президент отметил, что «являясь одной из крупнейших в мире ресурсодобывающих стран и полностью осознавая в этой связи свою ответственность, Туркменистан прилагает усилия по сохранению баланса между производственными целями и задачами по охране окружающей среды».

Он также отметил, что совместно с Организацией Объединённых Наций по промышленному развитию проводится подготовительная работа по реализации двух крупных проектов по защите озонового слоя.

Президент озвучил целесообразность разработки Стратегии ООН, нацеленной на осуществление мер по развитию низкоуглеродной энергетики и предложил создать под эгидой ООН международную «Дорожную карту» по развитию водорода в качестве одного из приоритетных направлений в энергетике.

Нынешняя встреча высокого уровня, созванная Генеральным секретарём ООН, завершает серию «круглых столов», проведённых за последние несколько месяцев региональными экономическими комиссиями ООН в рамках «Инициативы по финансированию развития в эпоху COVID-19 и в последующий период (FFDI)».
