Khmelnytskyi, located in the west of Ukraine on the banks of the Buh River, is known throughout Ukraine as a trading city and considers itself as a Marketplace of Innovation and Opportunity. Khmelnytskyi joined EBRD Green Cities in 2019 with a commitment to identify, prioritise and develop interventions to address its environmental and urban challenges.

The Green City Action Plan (GCAP) will establish a green vision for the city, including strategic objectives, actions and investments, to ensure a sustainable future for Khmelnytskyi.

EBRD and Khmelnytskyi officials resumed work on the city’s Green City Action Plan (GCAP) on 23 June 2022, agreeing to expand the GCAP’s scope to reflect current reality by adding a needs assessment covering the internally displaced persons now living there.
