The political economy of a green recovery in Ukraine

The Policy Practice Green Recovery in Ukraine Paper Cover

This new Policy Brief discusses the political economy of a green recovery in Ukraine. It analyzes how corruption might inhibit green, equitable and sustainable reconstruction in Ukraine, the drivers of this corruption and the political opportunities for tackling it. It recommends joining up the anti-corruption and environmental reform agendas, ensuring citizen and community involvement in post-war recovery and building on wartime community self-help initiatives. The brief is based on research undertaken in 2022 by Anna Paterson, Andrii Biletskyi, Lyubov Palyvoda and Sam Bickersteth for the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) Ukraine, with support from the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption project.
