The overarching goal of the regional project is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) by promoting energy efficiency (EE) in the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), namely Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Belarus, via strengthening the national systems for appliances EE standards. The project also will facilitate harmonization of test procedures, standards and labels among EEU countries, when appropriate.

Output 2. Establishment of a system of testing laboratories and implementation of measures to protect the market from low efficiency equipment.
Output 3. Consumers’ awareness raising on options and benefits of energy efficient technologies, assessment of greenhouse gas emissions reduction.
The project will consider the comparative advantage of each participating country, priority activities will be carried out to help foster each country's preferred processes under the project objective.
The project will build on a number of past and current UNDP activities in the partner countries in the area of EE.
