How can some of the world’s most fossil fuel-reliant economies—the emerging market and developing economies of Europe and Central Asia—transition to clean energy? How will they balance reliability, affordability, and energy security as they undergo this transition?

The World Bank’s latest report, Net Zero Energy by 2060: Charting Europe and Central Asia’s Journey Toward Sustainable Energy Futures, provides a unique analysis to help governments across the region prioritize policies and investments necessary to shift their energy systems away from fossil fuels by 2060.

Join the discussion on the report’s findings, hosted by the World Bank and the Oxus Society of Central Asia, featuring:
