This chapter delineates the lessons from the book by linking the conclusions from different chapters and highlighting the implications for Kazakhstan’s future policy and governance in the light of the ambitious Kazakhstan-2050 strategy that has been on the nation’s agenda since its adoption in 2012. The chapter identifies four themes that were reiterated by the authors throughout the book. The overarching theme is sustainability of Kazakhstan’s development as the future of some sectors does not appear to be resting on policies that are best suited to meeting the challenges of the twenty-first century. The other themes may be summarised as calls to ensure advancement in four areas: economic restructuring, participatory governance, intersectoral thinking in policymaking, and policy integration, rather than fragmentation. This concluding chapter discusses each of these themes in detail and draws the learning points for adjustments in policy and governance.
