Two main themes will be discussed:
  • "Sustainable management of water and water-related ecosystems";
  • "Greening the economy: promotion of environment in economic development".

Whilst the Astana Ministerial Conference is expected to address identified environmental issues of common concern in the pan-European area, at the same time the Conference provides an opportunity to address priority environmental issues in the Central Asian sub-region.

At its meeting in October 2009, the UNECE Committee on Environmental Policy welcomed the proposal of the European Environment Agency (EEA) to assess various environmental assessments of relevance to the region and to present the results of such assessments to the ministers in Astana, in an "Assessment of Assessments" report.
