Uzbekistan, a country of 33.58 million people, is taking its first steps towards nuclear power.

Whilst not blessed with an abundance of natural energy resources, the country has great potential for renewable energy, however its wind and solar sectors are woefully under-exploited.

Questions are being raised as to why Europe and most countries around the world are moving away from nuclear, and indeed fossil fuels, towards renewables the Central Asian nation is making this unusual move.

An international petition launched this week is calling on Uzbeki President Shavkat Mirziyoyev “to halt his country’s nuclear energy programme and invest in renewable energy sources, and to ensure clean and safe energy for future generations in Uzbekistan and beyond.”

The petition can be accessed and signed here.
