What is the Ukrainian version of “just transition?” How can the decarbonization process be implemented in eastern Ukraine? When is it possible to start these processes?
Right now these questions seem very abstract, but the answers to those questions are the starting point for the study of decarbonization – a process of transformation of the economy and energy sector, aiming at a step-by-step transition away from traditional sources of energy and replacing them with renewable ones.
Yet, the answers to these questions are already needed today. That’s why in 2021 the CF “Right to Protection” (R2P), within the 3P Consortium and with the financial support of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), jointly with Ukrainian and international NGOs ACTED Ukraine, the IMPACT Initiatives, the Danish Red Cross, and the Red Cross of Ukraine started to implement the project aimed at reducing the eastern Ukraine population’s vulnerability to the natural and industrial-driven disasters.
In turn, Charitable Fund “Right to Protection” (R2P) has commenced a decarbonization study, which will consist of desk research and field consultations. R2P’s experts will conduct a thorough analysis of decarbonization scenarios and further identify key risks for each scenario.
