The climate campaign
We actively promote decisions that will help Ukraine to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, tell the public about problems and threats caused by climate change. Early in 2019, we studied how an increase in the sea level caused by this problem will affect the southern regions of Ukraine. As a result, we developed an interactive map showing the flooded area. We also found out that 590 settlements across over a million hectares of land are located in the zone that will be entirely or partially flooded. This situation may result in the emergence of 75,000 climate migrants before the end of the century. In September, we, together with nine partner organizations, conducted the most massive climate march in Ukraine so far, where we announced, in particular, a demand to stop using fossil fuels and transit to 100% renewable energy. The action brought together almost 2,000 people from all over Ukraine. And already early in 2020, we, along with experts from different areas, created the Road Map for Ukraine's Climate Goals till 2030. There, based on the available documents and studies, we described goals that our country should achieve in five sectors to reduce greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently and reduce our country's contribution to the global climate crisis.
