  • Development and Commercialization of Bioenergy Technologies in the Municipal Sector in Ukraine

    The objective of the project is to accelerate sustainable agricultural biomass utilization for municipal heat and hot water services in Ukraine by introducing a conducive regulatory framework and by establishing a financial support mechanism. It is envisaged that this project will enable Ukraine to substantially move closer to its target of having some 7% of the country’s annual primary energy requirements for heating and hot water services supplied by biomass by 2030, as outlined in the “Energy Strategy of Ukraine to 2030”.

  • Integrating Rio Convention Provisions into Ukraine’s National Policy Framework

    The goal of this project is to catalyze Ukraine's implementation of the three Rio Conventions on a strengthened policy and institutionally sustainable development baseline. To this end, the project will focus on mainstreaming Rio Convention provisions into Ukraine's broader national development framework and strengthening related capacities to implement this framework

  • Conservation & Sustainable Use of Peatlands

    The project aims to support the Government of Ukraine in steering the country on a low emission pathway for Ukraine’s long-term economic development. To this effect, the project will strengthen the institutional capacity of Ukraine to design and implement long-term policies and measures directed at reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and enhancing absorption by sinks.

  • Ukraine Energy Efficiency Secretariat and Expert Hub

    The project aims to promote energy efficiency models countrywide and contribute to shaping more effective energy policies in Ukraine. Ultimately, the project will help, through its Expert Hub, the Ukrainian government to undertake sustainable transformation and reduce the country’s dependence on foreign energy sources, while promoting energy efficiency and streamlining the use of renewables to strengthen Ukraine’s energy security.

  • “Initial Implementation of Accelerated Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) Phase Out in the Countries  with economy in transition (CEIT) Region”

    The Programme is consistent with Ukraine's commitments on global environment management and plans on responding to multilateral agreements, in particular the requirements of Montreal protocol and the Vienna Convention on protection of ozone layer to which Ukraine is a party. The project works 1) to create favorable environment for protection of ozone layer in Ukraine, 2) increase capacities of relevant customs and environmental officers to prevent illegal ozone-depleting substances (ODS) trade and 3) support technological conversion to HCFC–free substances in the selected private companies.
