Abstract

Ukraine is an active participant in global action addressing climate change for the benefit of present and future generations. Ukraine signed and ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in which it was included to the list of Annex I countries as an industrial country with economy in transition. Furthermore, Ukraine’s participation in the Kyoto Protocol to the UNFCCC demonstrates its support of international commitments on climate protection, as well as asserts its aspiration for EU membership in a long-term perspective.
