From the podium of the high-level forum, the Turkmen leader said that the country, which continuously contributes to international efforts to reduce methane emissions, joins the commitment of the nation to methane and will continue active cooperation with international organizations and partner countries to solve climate problems.

As it is known, with the accession of our country to the Paris climate agreement, several relevant national programs were adopted. Accordingly, measures aimed at reducing the emission of methane into the environment and eliminating their negative effects are being implemented. It is, first of all, about the gradual transition and use of environmentally friendly, resource-saving modern technologies, especially in the energy, industrial and transport sectors. Also, in his speech at the forum, the President of Turkmenistan emphasized the importance of the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Turkmenistan and the UN Environment Program for the development of regional programs on November 13 of this year. Those regional programs are aimed at transferring air technologies to Turkmenistan and Central Asian countries.

The approved National Climate Change Strategy envisages the implementation of systematic measures aimed at reducing the amount of harmful emissions in all sectors, first of all, in the oil and gas, transport, electric power sectors, agricultural industry, and construction industry. Great attention is paid to the expansion of international cooperation in this field. Because the solution of ecological problems requires the unification of efforts at the global, regional and national levels, multilateral dialogue, and the actions of each state in this field in coordination with the UN.

Thus, the UN World Climate Summit showed that the world community understands the need to jointly solve the problem of climate change, which has become urgent for all mankind in recent decades, and to implement coordinated political and economic measures against this threat.

Today, during the meeting of the President Serdar Berdimuhamedov with the Vice-President, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, bilateral and multilateral discussions were held.
