Discussion on Cooperation Between Ukraine and Australia in the Field of Environmental Protection

A meeting was held between the ambassador of Australia to Ukraine Bruce Kevin Jeffrey Edwards and the minister of environment and natural resources of Ukraine Roman Abramsky

The topic of the dialogue was the preparation of countries for The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, and Ukraine's desire to move towards European integration and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

Ukraine's main goals for European integration are also:

  • the climatic goals of the countries defined in the updated nationally defined contributions to the Paris Agreement;
  • action plans of Ukraine and Australia for the implementation of NVB2 to the Paris Agreement;
  • creation of the Ukrainian Climate Fund and launch of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs;
  • creation of marine protected areas in Antarctica.

"Ukraine supports the creation of a marine conservation area in East Antarctica. However, this is only one aspect of preserving these ecosystems. We must work together to prevent climate change. After all, they affect the ecosystems of Antarctica no less than commercial fishing in seawater or any other human activity. The whole world must concentrate on developing new technologies that will help humanity achieve climate neutrality by 2060,”  said Roman Abramovsky.

Bruce Kevin Jeffrey Edwards noted that Australia is ready to cooperate with Ukraine in implementing the main provisions of the Paris Agreement and developing new methods and technologies to reduce investing-in-ukraine/starting-business-in-ukraine/greenhouses/" rel="dofollow">greenhouses/" rel="dofollow">greenhouse gas emissions, and will express their support.
