The Ukrainian city of Dnipro, a major industrial centre of Ukraine, is joining the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s flagship urban sustainability programme ‘EBRD Green Cities’. Dnipro becomes the programme’s 49th member overall.
Dnipro is the sixth Ukrainian city to join the €3 billion programme, following Lviv, Kyiv, Mariupol, Khmelnitskiy and Kryvyi Rih. Ukraine has more participating cities than any other EBRD country.
On joining the EBRD Green Cities programme, cities undertake a trigger project with the EBRD and also draft a Green City Action Plan (GCAP), setting out further actions to improve the local environment. In Dnipro’s case, a first loan by the EBRD is expected to support improvements to the public transport system. With multiple factories located within the city, improving air quality is a priority for the city.
To date, the EBRD has invested nearly €15 billion on nearly 500 projects in Ukraine, with a focus on assisting its stabilisation and anchoring its reforms by strengthening energy efficiency and energy security, unlocking agricultural and industrial potential, providing quality infrastructure and strengthening the financial sector.
