Developing capacities for climate policy in Southeast & Eastern Europe, South Caucasus and Central Asia

Overarching and cross-cutting issues

Even 30 years after the Frame­work Con­ven­tion on Cli­mate Change came into force, the capac­i­ties for design­ing and imple­ment­ing effec­tive cli­mate poli­cies are still weak in the coun­tries of the project region. The coun­tries are unit­ed by the chal­lenge of suc­cess­ful­ly trans­form­ing their eco­nom­ic sys­tems into open mar­ket economies while inte­grat­ing ambi­tious cli­mate pro­tec­tion poli­cies into nation­al devel­op­ment plan­ning. Above all, there is a lack of per­son­nel and insti­tu­tion­al skills and exper­tise. The project imple­ments mea­sures to raise aware­ness among deci­sion-mak­ers and improve nation­al frame­work con­di­tions so that the pre­con­di­tions for a sig­nif­i­cant reduc­tion of green­house gas­es are cre­at­ed and eco­nom­ic trans­for­ma­tion goals are achieved at the same time. Fur­ther­more, pilot activ­i­ties and addi­tion­al indi­vid­ual and small-scale mea­sures are imple­ment­ed to strength­en capac­i­ties that result from con­crete needs in the project region.

The “Shades of Green” dis­cus­sion on Ukraine’s green recov­ery, orga­nized by the Ukrain­ian Cli­mate Office, WWF Ukraine, and CEE on Novem­ber 21st, high­light­ed the impor­tance of green invest­ments. With around 50 par­tic­i­pants from nation­al and inter­na­tion­al cli­mate pol­i­cy stake­hold­ers, the event aimed to trans­late the ben­e­fits of green invest­ments into action­able steps for Ukraine.
