Energy and Environment

UNDP is uniquely positioned to provide support to the process of mainstreaming the SDGs in Ukraine, performing its integrator’s role, by bringing many actors (including other UN agencies, CSOs, the private sector, government institutions and academia) to incorporate the SDGs in policymaking, planning, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation at the national and local levels.

UNDP also contributes to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and development towards a low-emission and climate-resilient economy, by removing policy bottlenecks, developing market mechanisms, and assisting municipalities in implementing energy-efficient solutions. UNDP supports the government and parliament of Ukraine in drawing up quality legislation on sustainable energy and environmental issues, and works with the government and private sector on meeting Ukraine’s obligations under the Montreal Protocol.
