At a Glance
Ukraine is a large, diverse country with high agricultural potential, rich natural resources, and an established industrial base. Climate-driven changes such as higher temperatures – causing potential shifts in agricultural zones and leading to marked water deficiencies – can compromise the country’s food security and economic growth. The vulnerability of the population, which is largely urban, is magnified by infrastructure deficiencies such as an aging and fragile housing stock and limited potable water supply. The energy sector was responsible for nearly all of the greenhouse gas emissions, followed by manufacturing and construction, fugitive emissions, other fuel combustion, and transportation.
