In this special New Year episode, we take you behind the scenes of the production of the Eurasian Climate Brief and brief you on the biggest climate stories of the year for our region. Natalie Sauer unpacks Eastern European climate politics, discussing how Poland and other Visegrad countries have locked horns with the EU over climate legislation and forest conservation measures. The spat between the Czech Republic and Poland over an open-pit lignite mine on the border also gets a mention.
On Central Asia, Boris Schneider discusses the impact of energy-hungry cryptomining in Kazakhstan as well as the water disputes between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Commenting from her kitchen in St-Petersburg, Angelina Davydova closes in on Russia’s climate 2060 net-zero climate target, the country’s mounting environmental protests, and the recent coal mine explosion in Keremovo, Siberia, which left 51 dead.
