Enhanced regional cooperation on Environment, Climate Change and Water

The 5th EU-CA High Level Conference on Environment and Water in Milan

The Fifth EU-Central Asia High Level Conference on Environment and Water cooperation was held in Milan on 12-13 October 2015. This event was organised within the framework of the Platform for Environment and Water Cooperation of the EU-Central Asia strategy adopted in 2007. The discussions focused on progress review and the medium to long-term outlook for the on-going thematic cooperation between the European Union and the countries of Central Asia.

The Conference’s final document – a Joint Communiqué – was endorsed based on a unanimous consensus, which was reached following several months of consultations. The Communiqué outlines areas where the EU-Central Asia political and technical cooperation could have the highest impact on policies ensuring the environmental, water and climate resilience of the region’s economic growth.
