Central Asia: which dynamics in the energy transition?
Central Asia is rich in natural resources, not only underground but also in water. It is therefore a strategic area and is closely watched by its powerful neighbours such as China, Russia, Turkey and Iran.
This region is made up of five countries: Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan: "the countries in Stan". These states are now taking an important turn with a desire to open up to international investment and to make the transition to low-carbon energy. It is this energy transition that the Assystem group accompanies in the region and which you will discover in this episode.
