An inclusive green economy is low carbon, efficient and clean in production, but also inclusive in consumption and outcomes, based on sharing, circularity, collaboration, solidarity, resilience, opportunity, and interdependence. The transition to a green economy can advance the global sustainable development agenda by providing a pathway to poverty eradication and supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The emergence of the green economy has already had a positive effect in reinvigorating the global commitment to sustainable development, and has been a catalyst for renewed national policy development in this respect. Many countries are taking, or have already taken, steps to reform their legal and governance structures to incorporate laws and policies, which promote a green economy. Kyrgyzstan has expressed its commitment to making the transition to more inclusive green economy approaches by adopting National 2040 Sustainable Development Vision that helps to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It has already emerged as a leader in Central Asia by establishing a strong national policy framework for its transition to a green economy (GE). In 28 June 2018, by the Parliament Decree ¹ 2532-VI, the Public Council for Transition to Green Economy was established. Along with this decision, the parliamentarian Concept “Kyrgyzstan is a country of the green economy” was adopted. This Concept serves as the GE roadmap for the country and lays the foundation for reforms and innovations in several critical GE sectors. These include the following priorities and cross-cutting themes: green agriculture, green industry, green energy, low carbon and environmentally friendly transport, sustainable tourism, green cities, municipal waste management, sustainable finance, fiscal incentives, and sustainable public procurement. It is widely known that well-functioning regulatory framework can create rights and incentives that drive green economy. OSCE Programme Office supports the Secretariat of the Public Council for Transition to Green Economy since 2020 and it has been proven that existing regulatory framework should be better aligned with government objectives to promote green transition of economy.
