EU-Central Asia Cooperation
Water, Energy, and Environment

EU cooperation with Central Asia is based on the EU’s new geopolitical priorities set out along five pillars: Green Deals, Digitalisation, Sustainable Growth and Jobs, Migration Partnerships, and Governance, Peace and Security. The EU’s Green Deal priority, which engages the private sector and seeks to de-carbonize the energy sector, increase energy efficiency, and promote renewables, features prominently in the region, whereas the new EU Strategy on Central Asia continues to prioritise issues related to water management, and integration of environment into other sectors, with an increased emphasis on sustainable energy and the transition to Green and Circular economy.
