Reconstruire des infrastructures énergétiques durables en Ukraine

Le 3 juillet 2023, l’UNOPS, le ministère danois des Affaires étrangères et l’ambassade de l’Ukraine au Danemark organisent une table ronde de haut niveau sur la reconstruction d’infrastructures énergétiques plus durables et résilientes en Ukraine (en anglais).

Ukraine has been facing a significant energy crisis for several years. The conflict in Ukraine has caused severe damage to civilian infrastructure, severely worsening the energy crisis. The ongoing conflict, aging infrastructure, reliance on imports, supply shortages, high energy prices and environmental concerns highlight the need to rebuild Ukraine's energy infrastructure and transition to a more sustainable and resilient energy system.

As part of a live-streamed high-level roundtable discussion, UNOPS, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and the Embassy of Ukraine in Denmark are bringing together experts, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss Ukraine's energy infrastructure and explore opportunities to rebuild it with sustainable and innovative solutions.

The event will provide a platform to share experiences and best practices, identify key challenges and discuss strategies to overcome those challenges.
