Ukraine: Ukrainian Governmental Policies on Climate Change

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UP2021-0036

Ukraine has ambitions regarding combating climate change at the level of its laws and regulations. These are fueled by the nation’s international commitments (both bilateral and multilateral) as well as economic benefits stemming from participation in international emissions trading schemes. Being both a net agricultural exporter and net importer of fossil fuels, Ukraine will inevitably get more involved in climate change mitigations in the future. Implementation of practical measures aimed at decreased energy consumption, including biofuel production, and more environmentally sustainable production practices are most likely in the near-term.
