EBRD urban projects in Ukraine must drive national recovery efforts
Issue paper | 19 June 2023
A year and four months after the start of Russia’s large-scale war, Ukraine is on the verge of large-scale reconstruction. The country requires significant investments to reconstruct territorial communities in order to restore life, return residents, recover economic activity and respond to new challenges.
This issue paper provides an overview of the existing municipal programmes and projects in Ukraine that are financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. It also offers recommendations to the Bank to ensure that the reconstruction of Ukraine’s cities reflects long-term sustainable solutions, adopts the latest standards, and promotes decarbonisation, environmental restoration and protection, and climate neutrality.
