Russia’s war of genocide against Ukraine is having a direct negative impact on climate change and sustainable development in energy, food security and global poverty.  Ukrainian climate scientist  Svitlana Krakovska speaks of the fossil fuel war. Ukraine is committed to the Paris Climate Accord. It has an active program to fulfil Agenda 2030 goals internally and contribute to the global effort through Ukraine’s research and advanced technology development.
Russia’s war has resulted in significant damage to research facilities in Ukraine. There are multiple examples of theft and destruction of research instruments by Russian occupying forces.
Now young scientists in Ukraine have been mobilized to fight the invaders. After Russia stops its war and withdraws its forces, Ukraine will face the challenge of reopening research labs and retaining vitally needed scientists for research programs in Ukraine and with international partners.
Ukraine is committed to climate change and UN Agenda 2030. It is seeking international partners to help renew facilities and capabilities damaged by the war as well as to make its contribution to meeting global challenges.
The session will present how Ukrainian science is coping with the irrational onslaught of state-sponsored terrorism and identify areas with high potential for partnerships with other countries and international organizations to advance UN Sustainable Development Goals and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
