As a result, over 400 young people aged 18 to 35 years have acquired entrepreneurial knowledge and skills, learned how to create innovative business projects and attract investment and developed their start-up projects.

Turkmenistan maintains state control to coordinate efforts towards transitioning to a green economy, developing energy efficiency programmes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, curbing pollution and waste generation and creating and restoring ecosystems.

The Turkmen side announced the initiative to establish a Regional Centre for Climate Technologies under the auspices of the UN in Ashgabat.
