The Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Roman Abramovsky discussed with the Ambassador of Australia to Ukraine Bruce Kevin Jeffrey Edwards the preparation of our countries for COP26. About this announced press service of the Ministry of Ecology.
It should be noted that the organizers of the UN Climate Change Conferences of the 26th session of the Conference on the page of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP-26) are Great Britain and Italy. The conference will take place from October 31 to November 12, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland.
At first, visit by November 2020, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ukraine’s goals at the conference are, among other things, to protect its national interests and to present Ukrainian calculations of greenhouse gas emissions for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.
In addition, it is available for global climate finance to meet the goals of NVV2 and present the Ukrainian NRM system, which has already disseminated its work and is the first step in launching greenhouse gas emission trading systems, an economic tool to stimulate emission reductions.
Edwards, for his part, noted that Australia is ready to cooperate with Ukraine in implementing the main provisions of the Paris Agreement and the disclosure of new methods and technologies to reduce the number of visitors to greenhouse gases.
To begin with, Volodymyr Zelensky promised a practical reform that would completely modernize the industry and reduce emissions. But this can be achieved only in 10-12 years. Such is the statement of the President of Ukraine made at the forum “Ukraine 30. Ecology”.
“Modernization of the industry, which has not taken place in Ukraine so far, will take place in this way. We talked about the modernization of large-scale industry, ever, and not just thermal power plants. But do not believe those who say that we can reform in accordance with our preferences and European experience in just one year. No. The transition to a modernized industry will take 10-12 years to implement, ”the President stressed.
As you know, the bill on industrial pollution № 4167, vote on each The Verkhovna Rada has already failed twice, provides for the transition to European pollution standards within 4 years. This norm is the most criticized against European associations and industry.
