2022 OECD Infrastructure Forum

Session 5 - Roundtable Discussion: Needs and Priorities for Re-constructing a Resilient Ukraine

Oct 11, 2022 | 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Room CC9 - Plenary room


Despite Russia’s large-scale and ongoing aggression, Ukraine is working hard to re-establish or maintain key services and to ensure the reconstruction and maintenance of critical infrastructure. It can also take steps now to improve its capacity to prioritise, target, and coordinate infrastructure investments for the country’s reconstruction once the war ends. Given the scale of ambition of the Ukraine Recovery Plan, strategic infrastructure plans, e.g. sectoral, regional, and local masterplans, will help provide a basis for prioritisation and selection of infrastructure projects, based on an overview of needs, a vision of national and local economic development, and shared values with European and OECD countries, including a green, sustainable and inclusive future. This session will look at what lessons can be drawn for Ukraine reconstruction from the experiences of OECD countries, which have suffered nationwide disasters in the past and have updated their contingency plans for the future. It will look at what evidence, data and expertise is required to inform strategic decision-making, the current work that the OECD is doing with Ukraine to support the reconstruction, and the possible role of OECD members to support reconstruction efforts.
