Environmental Impact Assessment in Ukraine – Preparatory Support to the Launch of the National Registry

Project summary

The project's objective is to develop a well-functioning Unified National Environmental Impact Assessment Registry, fully congruent to the appropriate EU standards and the context of Ukraine.

The Registry is aimed at simplifying the process of conducting the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedure for new projects, raising public awareness of potential projects and risks related to them, and ensuring transparency in the decision-making process. The online tool records and makes publicly available the assessment of the potential effects of the project on the environment and people’s health, as well as recording decisions and measures taken to reduce the negative environmental impact of the planned activity. The Registry contains open documentation for business and the public at all stages of the EIA procedure, which reduces the potential for corruption in the decision-making process and contributes to the democratization of Ukrainian society.

The key project result is the provision of software, as well as support for the Registry's implementation.
