Event room: Diamond (for Annual Meeting and Business Forum delegates in Samarkand)
With a growing number of Central Asian cities joining our EBRD Green Cities initiative, this event will showcase replicable and scalable examples of resilient infrastructure projects from Central Asia and the wider region. Panellists will also consider what more can be done to attract and mobilise the private sector to support resilient infrastructure projects and enhance regional collaboration.
Demonstrating a keen interest in resilient, smart and green solutions, Central Asian cities are drawing on their age-old tradition of innovating. In so doing, they are leading the way in taking a joined-up approach to urban sustainability through a variety of financing instruments.
