Until its official registration, the Green Alliance of Kyrgyzstan was known as the Climate Network of Kyrgyzstan (https://infoik.net.kg/). Ever since then, the organization has successfully supported projects related to climate change and sustainable development. In particular, we promoted public interests, initiatives, and policies by facilitating the activities of state bodies at the international and national levels and organizing public monitoring of the fulfillment of international obligations of the Kyrgyz Republic under the UNFCCC.
Additionally, the Green Alliance of Kyrgyzstan actively contributes to the development and strengthening of intersectoral cooperation, and the development of information, and analytical reviews on thematic issues related to the problem of climate change. We support the strengthening of climate resilience at the local level and contribute to raising environmental awareness and climate protection literacy through collaboration with government officials, local authorities, the mass media, and academia. Also, we assist in the development and implementation of innovative technologies and practices. Our alliance is not limited only to these initiatives, and we realize how important is our mission for other areas such as peacebuilding, social stability, conflict prevention, green finance, renewable energy, green and healthy agriculture and farming, green production, green tourism, green construction and the like.
Green Alliance of Kyrgyzstan always keeps its doors open to like-minded organizations and individuals representing very different fields. If your ideals correspond to our mission, then we welcome you to join our team.
