Driving investment attraction and absorption to support the future of Ukraine

Human dimension: Putting human capital at the core of Ukraine’s recovery

What is needed to ensure green reconstruction of Ukraine’s industry and energy sectors?
An important imperative of the reconstruction of Ukraine is green reconstruction, based on carbon-neutral and energy efficient technologies. This is not a luxury add-on, but vital to ensure that Ukraine has an asset base fit for its potential future as an EU member state. Reconstruction based on fossil-based technologies may create stranded assets in the near to medium term. The panel will focus on what is required in terms of policy and financing as well as how and where private sector companies see opportunities to build Ukraine’s future green economy. First results of an upcoming joint study by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and Deloitte Germany & Deloitte France on the strategic development of Ukraine’s carbon pricing towards EU-accession will be presented.

A proactive and scaled approach is critical to safeguard recovery funds, deliver effectively in the rebuilding of Ukraine and instill confidence in the international affairs and development community. This session will focus on the importance of embedding integrity and a proactive approach to mitigating fraud and control risks in the management and supervision of funds being made by donors and other organizations. The panel of specialists will share their thoughts on how to identify risks across the recovery funding life cycle, and the control frameworks and mechanisms that are important to manage the vast flow of funding expected, so that it can be used effectively to rebuild Ukraine for the future.
