Moreover, miners have endured disproportionately high rates of occupational health ailments, including respiratory diseases and musculoskeletal disorders. Thus, UNDP partnered with DTEK and Metinvest—two of Ukraine’s largest mining and energy companies—to improve the health and safety of miners in Krasnodon, Rovenky and Sverdlovsk.

OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY

Effective use of energy and the overall state of environment are essential for sustainable development. These issues are also global as climate change, loss of biodiversity and ozone layer depletion cannot be addressed by countries acting alone. UNDP helps Ukraine strengthen their capacity to address these challenges at global, national and community levels, seeking out and sharing best practices, providing innovative policy advice and linking partners through pilot projects that help poor people build sustainable livelihoods.
