Ukrainian Green Recovery Conference

November 27, 2023 - December 1, 2023

In Vilnius, the #Ukraine #Green #Recovery Conference took place. It was organized by European Commission.

It was a powerful conference, very expert, deep, and with the participation of many high-ranking officials from the EU and Ukraine.

The main conclusions and challenges.

The first and foremost is the war. Losses on the front. Destruction of Ukraine’s infrastructure. People and businesses are fleeing the war. We are losing our children, many of whom, probably, will not return to Ukraine. We are losing professionals.

But, in addition to this, there’s the harmonization of EU and Ukrainian legislation challenge, training of relevant experts and specialists for Ukraine challenge, needs for development of recovery projects in accordance with the best global practices, creation of appropriate infrastructure in Ukraine, waste management, asbestos handling and many other challenges.

We had substantive discussions with the Green Building Council Italia (Paolo Cambula) and DGNB German Sustainable Building Council (Levan Ekhvaia), and with many other people, NGOs and companies, we outlined what we can do right now.

What’s next?

There will be a lot of work ahead, probably hard and often thankless.

But considering the trials that the Ukrainian people and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are going through, this all seems like the absolute minimum of what we have to, what we must do.
