Policy Brief on Climate Change Adaptation of Infrastructure in Kazakhstan published
The macroeconomic effects of adaptation measures for building and transportation infrastructure were quantified using the e3.kz model. Specifically, the impacts of the measures "(Re-)construction of storm-proofed buildings", "’Green Belt’ mass afforestation" to reduce the adverse impacts from storms, and "(Re-)construction of climate resilient roads" were analyzed. The results show that positive macroeconomic effects can be expected.
The macro-econometric model e3.kz for Kazakhstan was jointly developed by GWS and project partners in Kazakhstan. The results are summarized in the Policy Brief.
