About the event

Organized as part of the 1st Caspian Economic Forum, the main purpose of this event is twofold. First, it aims at showcasing the progress achieved by Turkmenistan in implementation of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development through the presentation of the findings of the first Voluntary National Review for the wide audience of the Forum.

At the same time the event will discuss the role of financing in implementing the 2030 Agenda in the context of the Caspian region, North and Central Asia and beyond. In particular, it will serve as a consultative process where multiple stakeholders from North and Central Asia, Caspian littoral states and beyond the region review the progress on the AAAA, examine financing opportunities and challenges, and discuss other relevant financing for development issues. Moreover, the presentations and discussion could also enhance the participants’ understanding on various global/regional initiatives and activities on financing for development that are carried out by the United Nations, including ESCAP, and international financial institutions.

The event is open to all participants at the 1st Caspian Economic Forum, which include representatives of Caspian littoral states, states in North and Central Asia, subregional stakeholders, intergovernmental organizations, civil society organizations and academia.
