The Coalition for Green Economy together with G-Global and the Akbota Fund have presented May 11 the new social project Arnasai-the Green Valley, reported the press service of the coalition. The ceremony was organised by the National Academy for Green Technologies.
The project seeks to demonstrate the efficiency of resource and energy saving technologies in a village. It is planned to use green technologies for rural infrastructure development to improve the quality of life outside of the urban areas.
As stated in the press statement, during the opening ceremony tomato seeds were given to village residents of Arnasai. The project is part of the transition process of Kazakhstan to a green economy and is supported by the European Union, the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The presentation embraced various aspects of the new complex, including energy- and water-saving technologies. The planting of tomato seeds will launch the other initiative to provide the local school and kindergarten with ecologically clean vegetables.
The Arnasai village is situated in the Arshaly District of the Akmola region. The event was attended by representatives of the embassies of Great Britain and France, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the European Union delegation to Kazakhstan, as well as by residents and visitors of Arnasai village.
