Chisinau, the capital and largest city in Moldova, joined EBRD Green Cities in August 2018.

Its desire to develop a GCAP was driven by pressures arising from an increasing population in the city and the maintenance burden of Soviet-era utilities and municipal infrastructure.

By committing to a GCAP, Chisinau will be able to identify and prioritise the city’s major challenges in the different urban development sectors, including energy efficiency, transport, water and wastewater, industry and waste management. By adopting a green and sustainable vision for the future, Chisinau will be able to rejuvenate its urban landscape.
