What is SAF Ukraine?
SAF Ukraine (Sustainable Agribusiness Forum) is the online platform for sustainable agribusiness that was created in 2017 on the initiative and support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). This communication platform aims to unite agribusiness stakeholders, establish strong connections between market players and introduce sustainable approaches in agriculture.
SAF platform currently implemented within the EBRD and GEF program “Ukraine: Sustainable Bioenergy Value Chain Innovations”.
Objectives of the SAF Ukraine platform:
- support development of a partnership, knowledge sharing and marketing activities for the agriwastes-to-energy supply chain. This activity will be conducted through delivering capacity building seminars/trainings for the agricultural sector, developing the collaborative network of market players and equip them with necessary information and communication tools, conducting study tour and disseminating success stories and case studies through website www.saf.org.ua.
- promoting the sustainability and carbon neutrality of Ukrainian agribusiness, as well as carrying out activities that are in line with Ukraine’s national contribution to the Paris Agreement.
- implement market studies to analyze technology, regulatory, and knowledge barriers and gaps in climate technologies in Ukraine.
The EBRD’s FINTECC (Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change) programme joined the foundation of the platform in 2017.
