Reform Support Team of the Ministry for Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine
Key areas of work:
Energy Efficiency Reform. According to the official statistics for the year 2019, 37% of all final energy in Ukraine is consumed in the buildings sector. About 80% of buildings are over 30 to 70 years old. They are physically outworn and 2-3-fold exceed the cost-optimal levels of energy use. Given Ukraine's high dependence on energy imports, this situation negatively affects the country's energy security, affordability of energy for people as well as their living in healthy and comfortable premises. The purpose of the Energy Efficiency Reform is to create favourable regulatory and economic conditions for substantial growth in the rate and depth of buildings thermal modernization. This makes it possible to qualitatively renovate buildings; at least halve the energy costs for people, business, central and local governments; improve occupant comfort in buildings as well as people’s quality of life, while tackling energy poverty. Moreover, the implementation of the reform provides a significant stimulus to economic growth in all regions of the country, creation of new green jobs, and increase in tax revenues to communities’ budgets.
Housing and Communal Services Reform. The reform of the Housing and Communal Services sector applies to everyone without exaggeration. Utilities sector covers 100% of Ukrainian households and must provide affordable, comfortable, high-quality, safe and ecological life for people. Reform of the District Heating sector, as one of the largest energy consumers, is the key to the development of comfortable, energy efficient and CO2-neutral cities. Reform of centralized clean water supply and reuse of treated wastewater and sludge is the only option for a healthy Nation and part of a circular economy. The waste management sector is well positioned to deliver advanced, high-technology to build a resource-efficient economy and establish the sustainable waste management system and enhance greater environmental protection. Housing policy reform will allow consumers to manage their homes simply and efficiently. The objective of the reforms is to improve the mechanisms of functioning of Housing and Communal Services markets, to regulate relations between all participants, to strengthen energy and environmental security of the customers and to provide the necessary level of social support.
Construction Reform. The purpose of this reform is the development of the construction industry, which is one of the foundations for the growth of Ukraine's economy as a whole and creating conditions for solving many social problems, creating a transparent system for competitiveness, improving the investment climate, increasing number of construction products, improving the technical level, quality, and reliability of domestic products.
The goals of the reform are to ensure the reliability of construction objects at all stages of the life cycle and the possibility of applying world experience and best practices in the field of construction.
The main directions of reform are:
Digitization of services in the field of construction, introduction of the Unified State Electronic System in the Construction
Introduction of construction information modelling (BIM-technologies) at all stages of the life cycle of construction objects.
Establishment of conditions harmonized with European conditions for the provision of construction products on the market and adaptation of current legislation to their introduction by implementing in the legislation of Ukraine a consolidated version of Regulation (EU) № 305/2011 of the European Parliament and the Council.
PAR. Public administration reform is one of the key ones, as the success of other reforms in Ukraine depends on the quality of government work. The reform is based on European standards of good governance and aims to achieve positive changes in public administration as a whole. The reform support team's activities aim to increase the efficiency and transparency of the civil service, improve the personnel management system, and use modern tools and practices to develop the Ministry as an attractive employer.
