Climate & Energetics

Climate & Energetics

 

The world scientific community has repeatedly provided irrefutable evidence of the impact of human activities on the climate, emphasizing the catastrophic predictions of the situation at current trends. These conditions need urgent actions to prevent critical consequences of climate change for humanity.

Ukraine is  part of the twenty countries with the highest greenhouse gas emissions in the world and still aims to increase own development within the industry.  Ukraine should choose new approaches to economic development at this historical turning point.  For the energy sector this means the  transition from nuclear and coal energy, shale gas to energy efficiency and renewable energy. This will help to solve many complex environmental, economic and social problems.

Now it is important to support those "green" actors who are working for the realization of such shift in the principles of objectivity, transparency and fairness.

Members of the Parliament from the Committee on Fuel and Energy sector, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, mayors of single-industry coal cities, jpurnalists, representatives of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine and civil society took part in the study visit to Germany on "Perspectives of development beyond coal." 

2017 April snowfalls in Ukraine showed that climate change issues are as  relevant to us as to other countries.

Compared to COP21 where the EU had a decisive bridge-building role between developed and developing countries in leading a strong climate coalition, in Marrakesh Europe appeared silent and divided.

Since many countries in East and Southeast Europe have much in common from perspective of climate policies and EU-integration development vector, Heinrich Boell Foundation Offices in Belgrade and Kiev organized a panel discussion entitled “EU enlargement: increasing the climate ambition?” on November 16, 2016 in Marrakech, during the Conference of Parties to UNFCCC UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22).

In the period November 7-18, 2016, the Conference of the Parties of UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) is ongoing in the city of Marrakech, Morocco.
