This is the second EPR of Ukraine published by the UNECE. The report takes stock of the progress made by Ukraine in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 1999. While looking closely at the implementation of the recommendations of the first review, the report also covers 10 issues of importance to Ukraine concerning policymaking, planning and implementation; the financing of environmental policies and projects; and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors and the promotion of sustainable development. Issues receiving special attention during the review included compliance and enforcement mechanisms; economic instruments and environmental funds; and environmental management in energy, industry and transport activities and in land management.
ECE would also like to express its deep appreciation to the Governments of Austria, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and Sweden, as well as the OSCE and the United Nations Development Programme for their support to the Environmental Performance Review Programme and to this review.
