Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. On behalf of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), it is my pleasure and honor to be here at the Almaty University for Power Engineering and Telecommunications today to sign this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) for a regional partnership supporting development across Central Asia. 

First, I would like to thank the University’s Chancellor for graciously hosting us for this event, as well as EBRD’s Managing Director for Central Asia and other colleagues for joining us here today. 

The United States and Central Asian countries share a common vision to tackle one of the biggest challenges of our era⁠—the global climate crisis. 

Like the United States, the Central Asian governments have set ambitious targets to achieve carbon neutrality in the coming decades. Here in Kazakhstan, for example, the government is aiming for carbon neutrality by 2060, with other countries in the region focused on similar achievements.
