  2. 2. KAZAKHSTAN IN THE UN • Since 1992 Kazakhstan is a member of UN • International Ministerial Conference of Landlocked and Transit Developing Countries and Donor Countries and International Financial and Development Institutions on Transit Transport Cooperation, August 2003, Almaty • 63rd session of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, May 2007, Almaty • International Conference of World Health Organization dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the Alma-Ata Declaration on Primary Health Care • 18th session of the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization • Underlines its commitment to peacekeeping activities through participation in the UN Standby Arrangements System, helping the UN to respond rapidly to threats to international peace since 2003.

  3. 3. PLAYING A PROMINENT ROLE ON THE WORLD STAGE • Kazakhstan is an active proponent of nuclear disarmament and is working to create a world free of nuclear weapons • In 1992, Kazakhstan launched the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) – which has become one of the most respected platforms for security in Asia in the last 20 years • In 2010, Kazakhstan chaired one of the most influential organizations in the world, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) • During 2011-2012, Kazakhstan held the chairmanship of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) • Kazakhstan is playing an active and important role in the Istanbul Process on Afghanistan • Provided a platform for the P5+1 negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program • Initiated the Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions.
  4. 4. COMPREHENSIVE VIEW ON PEACE AND SECURITY • The active involvement of our country in a large number of regional and global processes provides it with the knowledge and experience to address many of the issues facing the United Nations Security Council • Kazakhstan is committed to the comprehensive concept of peace and security. Peace and security, human rights and sustainable development are interdependent issues that must be carried out simultaneously and comprehensively

  6. 6. FOOD SECURITY. FEEDING THE WORLD. NOURISHING PEACE. • Everyday 25,000 people and more than 10,000 children in the world die due to hunger and hungerrelated diseases. • From 2010-2012, more than 870 million people faced famine. This is just a fraction of the billions of people whose health, well-being and lives are affected by malnutrition. • Kazakhstan has a vibrant agricultural sector that ensures its position as one of the top global exporters of grain and flour. • According to UN data, Kazakhstan is in a group of proactive nations providing humanitarian aid. We are establishing an international development assistance agency, KazAID, to further enhance that role.
  7. 7. WATER SECURITY. VITAL TO PEACE. VITAL TO PROGRESS. • Water is one of our planet’s scarcest and most precious resources. • More than 2 billion people in the world do not have sufficient access to water. • In just two years, half of earth’s population will experience a shortage of clean, safe water. By 2025, almost two-thirds of the planet will suffer from a shortage of clean, safe water. • Kazakhstan, as the largest landlocked country in the world, has never taken water security for granted. • We are successfully addressing one of the toughest global environmental challenges: the drying up of the Aral Sea. Through our efforts, the waters of the shrinking Aral Sea are gradually returning. • Kazakhstan actively cooperates with our neighboring countries to manage trans-boundary rivers.
  8. 8. ENERGY SECURITY. POWERING THE FUTURE. • One in five people in the world do not have access to electricity. • The burning of fossil fuels causes air pollution, which results in the premature deaths of about 800,000 people, annually. • Kazakhstan possesses world-class conventional energy resources. • Despite this fact, Kazakhstan is committed to developing a green economy. The “Rio+20” United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development” supports the “Green Bridge” Partnership Program, initiated by Kazakhstan. The main theme of “EXPO-2017” in Astana is “Energy of the Future.”
  9. 9. A GLOBAL LEADER IN NUCLEAR RESPONSIBILITY Kazakhstan has: • contributed to global non-proliferation • voluntarily renounced all its nuclear weapons, following the collapse of the USSR. Kazakhstan had the world’s fourth largest nuclear arsenal on its territory • initiated a resolution to proclaim August 29 as the International Day Against Nuclear Tests, adopted in 2009 by the 64th UN General Assembly • offered to host an international nuclear fuel bank under IAEA auspices • launched the ATOM Project, an international campaign for peace, during the international Forum for a Nuclear-Free World in Astana in 2012 • proposed the adoption of the Universal Declaration of a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World at the Global Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C. (2010) and Seoul (2012) (bottom left)
  10. 10. COOPERATION: THE KEY TO SUCCESS Kazakhstan would seek to utilize United Nations mechanisms in order to achieve goals for: • The maintenance of international peace and security. • Disarmament and non-proliferation. • Facilitating the settlement of crises and conflicts, as well as “preventive” diplomacy. • Responding quickly and effectively to humanitarian emergencies, including mass and gross violations of human rights and the rights of national minorities. • Peace keeping and peace building.
