Within the framework of the 65th UN General Assembly session in New York, the Ukrainian delegation headed by Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryshchenko participated in the ministerial consultations on climate change, where an informal exchange of views was held on the positions of the parties before the Conference of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, UKRINFORM reported.

The consultations were attended by ministers of foreign affairs and protection of environment from over 40 countries, which play a key role in the development of post-Kyoto architecture to prevent climate change.

Ukraine consistently makes its contribution to the fight against global climate change, the press service of the MFA says. As a country, which in 2004 ratified the Kyoto Protocol, Ukraine is actively implementing both national events to mitigate climate change and its effects, and international "flexible" mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol, joint implementation projects and emission trading on the Green Investment Scheme.

For example, 179 letters were issued in Ukraine in support for joint implementation of projects that may reduce emissions by 170 million tons of CO2-eq.

Due to introduction of the scheme of green investment, money received from the sale of surplus quotas will be directed, in particular, for energy conservation measures in the social sector, energy efficiency, alternative energy sources and the like.
