Investing in a low-emission, resilient future: opportunities for Turkey

22 January 2019

We are pleased to welcome you on Tuesday 22 January 2019, from 9:30-13:00 at the Radisson Blu Bosphorus, Yıldız Mh., Çırağan Cd. 46 to the following event co-organised by OECD and SHURA:

Investing in a low-emission, resilient future: opportunities for Turkey

Due to strong demographic and economic growth, Turkey is increasingly relying on imports to meet its rising demand for energy. Imports now account for three quarters of the country’s primary energy supply. Yet, Turkey has significant potential for renewable energy and energy efficiency resources, a flexible financial sector, a strong business culture, and a large manufacturing and engineering base. By investing in a low-emission, resilient future, Turkey can tap into these national resources, and reap the benefits of an energy transition, including: stronger energy security, enhanced terms of trade, more jobs and economic activity, as well as improved air quality and other environmental outcomes. The OECD’s Investing in Climate, Investing in Growth report offers insights on how to ensure a successful transition. It provides an analysis of how climate goals can be achieved while simultaneously spurring economic growth, competitiveness and well-being, as well as fiscal and structural reforms that can boost growth in the short and long term.

Confirmed speakers include a range of high-level public and private sector representatives. More details on the agenda to follow.

Please RSVP by 15 January by filling in the form, via [email protected] , or by contacting (+90 536 381 48 09) or (+90 530 544 34 31).
