The motives and role of the implementation of the "one belt, one road" initiative in solving the problem of energy security, which are poorly studied in modern literature, will be shown.

The conclusions of research are based on factor and cluster cross-country analysis of a number of indicators (level of development, energy security, etc.) and demonstrate what determines the ambition and specificity of climate policy in developed and developing countries.
