Visitors to the UN pavilion at the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 can launch a micro-hydro power station. The organization presented projects in the field of green technologies carried out in Kazakhstan, the "Kazakh TV" channel broadcasts.
"Kazakhstan is the leading country in energy efficiency and promotion of the green economy. I am confident that it will become a leader in this field. Your country has become a platform for engaging the scientific community, the business community and experts who can share their experience and knowledge", - UN Commissioner for the EXPO 2017 Cihan Sultanoglu said.
An interactive sandbox is an outstanding exhibit in the exhibition area. It demonstrates the use of natural resources in the face of climate change.
"There is a technology of laser leveling. With the help of attached equipment we flatter the surface of ground and this allows water not to flow away from the surface. I can show an example - here is a flattened surface, if it is uneven - water accumulates here. Thus a loss of moisture is observed. We tested it in the Kyzylorda region characterized by high aridity and moisture-saving - one of the priorities in the region", - said UNDP project manager Yerlan Zhumabayev.
Guests of the pavilion can also see a small copy of the underground greenhouse which works in the village "Arnasay". The plant is powered only by phyto-diode lighting. A greenhouse like this appeared for the first time in Central Asia.
"Here you see basil and salad, they usually grow over 60 days and in our greenhouse they grow in 40-45 days. It's very profitable", - said volunteer Anna Lapayeva.
Let us remind that Kazakhstan together with the UN intends to hold the VIII International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development and the Ministerial Meeting on Energy at the site of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. The International Energy Charter will take part in the forum and conference. The theme of energy for sustainable development will be presented in the pavilion of the UN.
Earlier, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres met with the Speaker of the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev and highly appreciated the World Specialized Exhibition EXPO 2017 held in Astana.
It should be noted that the Organization renders wide information support at the exhibition.
