    Improving the state of the environment, the quality of life and health of Ukrainians, ensuring environmental safety - all those can be achieved by implementing the measures of the National Action Plan in the next 5 years.

    The action plan is designed to ensure the implementation of the Strategy of National Environmental Policy of Ukraine for the period up to 2030.

    "Adoption of the National Action Plan is a strategic step towards the implementation of European environmental norms and standards, good environmental status and reduction of air, water and land pollution. The Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources team is already working on its implementation. It is important that the document defines the mechanisms for managing the territories of the Emerald Network of Europe at the state level, and provides for the establishment of government authority for waste management," commented Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Roman Abramovskyy.

    Objectives of the National Plan are as follows:

    • shaping within society ecological values and principles of sustainable consumption and production;
    • ensuring sustainable development of Ukraine's natural resource potential;
    • integrating environmental policy into all spheres of socio-economic development of Ukraine;
    • reducing environmental risks to minimize their impact on ecosystems and the health of Ukrainians;
    • improving and developing the state system of environmental management.
