Ukraine: A Regional Waste Management Strategy for Poltava Region
On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU), GIZ supports the municipalities in the Ukrainian region Poltava to develop a regional waste management strategy. The project is part of the “Export Initiative for Green Technologies”, launched in 2016 to export know-how available in Germany to support sustainable development and environmental and climate protection. It promotes technology applications and harmonized standards and creates suitable conditions for the successful and sustainable use of green technologies “Made in Germany”. The projects contribute to the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) and focus on knowledge transfer, pilot projects, sustainable business models, capacity building, environmental education and awareness raising. The supported activities are embedded in the national strategies of the partner countries.
