Green and resilient recovery for further development

The war in Ukraine has significant global consequences. Many governments must spend vast sums on improving security, building up their energy and economic resilience. This will surely influence Ukraine’s ability to recover in the post-war time to become greener and more resilient. The country will certainly need to put great efforts to develop models and instruments to facilitate private sector investments and access to sustainable finance.

SEI’s Richard J. T. Klein is a panellist at this event.

In this panel discussion, UNDP representatives, Ukraine government officials, private sector representatives and independent experts from other countries will discuss what burdens are there on the recovery path and what chances are to succeed. Among others, our discussion topics will be on the following:

  • what recovery priorities should be considered and implemented still during the wartime
  • what business models, mechanisms and instruments should be applied for success
  • what decarbonization efforts should be made now and during post-war time
  • what funding sources and financing mechanisms should be considered first to support resilient and sustainable recovery.
