Short description of the overall project

The project supports the Ukrainian Ministry for the Environment to develop the necessary prerequisites for establishing an emissions trading scheme (ETS).


Short description of activities financed by the donation

At the national level, the development of an administrative structure and necessary capacities are planned to be supported. In addition, the partner is planned to be enabled to develop a technical understanding for setting the emissions cap on the basis of different emission scenarios, which will serve as the main factor in the decision making process. Furthermore, the project assists in the elaboration of rules and procedures for the allocations of emission allowances as well as in the adaptation of the EU's registry.

At private sector level, technical capacities for the development of monitoring plans and emission reports as well as for the verification of emission reports are created.
