Secretariat commits to help Ukraine’s green rebuilding planning
In a meeting with First Deputy Prime Minister Yulia Svyrydenko, the Secretariat reaffirmed its commitment to helping Ukraine to prepare a National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) - an EU template for energy and climate governance. The process should contribute to the G7+ dialogue over Ukraine’s green recovery. An outreach to the donors will be ensured via High Level Reflection Group established for that reason. Ukraine Recovery Conference in London (21-22 June) will be an opportunity to take stock of the actions needed.
We are ready to support Ukraine in defining an operational pathway towards decarbonization targets while integrating with the EU. We share the views that the donors’ debate on a green rebuilding strategy for Ukraine should be complemented by the work on a tailor-made NECP, – said Mr. Lorkowski.
The NECP will ensure transparency, sustainability, and inclusivity. It is a comprehensive document that outlines a country's policies and measures for achieving climate neutrality. Energy Community Treaty will ensure that proper accountability mechanisms are in place. This should improve regulatory certainty and contribute to de-risking framework for future investments.
Currently, the Action Plan for post-war reconstruction and development of Ukraine for the implementation of the Energy Strategy until 2050 is being finalized. We are sure that the National Energy and Climate Plan of Ukraine should become part of the country's post-war recovery, said Ms. Svyridenko.
The Secretariat is proud to be part of this crucial effort and looks forward to assisting Ukraine in achieving its green rebuilding goals.
