ECO-IEST:
Green energy dominated the closed-door discussions among senior officials of the 10 member states of the Economic Cooperation Organization – or ECO – at its 5th Ministerial Meeting in the Turkish city of Istanbul this week.

On Wednesday, the meeting presented its recommendations in a roadmap for the future. The roadmap, called ‘Istanbul Declaration on Climate Change and Green Economy’, will impact an overall population of 350 million living in the ECO region. Global warming and climate change are key factors that place stress on the environment, the effects of which adversely impact social, environmental and economic spheres of life, and create food and energy insecurities.

The participating members called for the development of green energy to transform existing economics for sustainable development. The success of the Istanbul Declaration depends on a higher level of political will and proactive efforts of the member states.
