Sustainable Energy and Environment Secretariat to Support the Parliament of Ukraine in Sustainable Energy and Environment Area (â??Green Caucusâ?? Secretariat)
Commissioning Unit: Ukraine
Evaluation Plan: 2018-2022
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 02/2021
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Ukraine
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

The project should focus on selected areas of green agenda (with a prior research on the needs and the respective units of Rada primarily charged with these issues). These will be the issues that are of high priority but receiving little or no support through other development projects. These could potentially include environmental finance, EU climate law and its effect on Ukraine; Climate finance, including the climate border mechanism, Environmental tax mechanisms, circular economy, etc. The project would then work through the Secretariat of Rada reaching out to more than one unit of Rada (Committees, IFUs, Secretariat, etc.). EU experts should be invited to make presentations.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/04/28]

The recommendation is fully accepted. A special Working Group on environmental insurance has been created under the Committee on Environmental Policy and Natural Resources.

2. Recommendation:

There should be closer collaboration with the EU Rada for Europe and USAID Rada projects, in a way illustrating on green issues the new procedures that were/would be promoted with these horizontal efforts. For example, there is a draft law on mandatory public consultations of the draft laws: the project could illustrate it with the example of draft laws in the “green” domain. Similarly, with the PLS. Also, the project could support independent legal scrutiny of the draft laws by the Rada: the EU Rada project is supporting Rada to set a “Parliamentary Research Services”; this project could demonstrate it with the legislation in the “green” domain. All of the above should be support with analytical materials, including with the examples form the EU countries. Advice could also cover capacity building on the costing of the draft laws and review
