Transport Minister Funds Sustainable Infrastructure Research in Ukraine

Transport Canada

The Government of Canada condemns the Russian regime’s senseless war of aggression and will continue to take action to stand with Ukraine. That’s why, the Government is committed in doing whatever it can to support the people of Ukraine as they rebuild their country and their transportation system.

Today, the Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced an investment of $300,000 to the International Transport Forum (ITF) under the Clean Transportation System – Research and Development program (CTS R&D). This funding will help support the important research work of the ITF with respect to the rebuilding of Ukraine’s transportation infrastructure and supply chains to make them greener, more sustainable and better connected.

This 18-month research project will assess the state of Ukraine’s freight transport sector and guide the identification of significant challenges in transitioning towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly freight transport system for post-war Ukraine. It will also develop sustainable transport pathways based on a comprehensive analysis of the sector’s current and future scenarios of international trade and the country’s connectivity to global markets.

Reconstructing Ukraine’s transport sector will require unprecedented effort from all, including international partners, to ensure safe, sustainable supply chains and connectivity. The International Transport Forum is well-placed to help set out sustainable transport pathways and supply chains for Ukraine across all transport modes, covering both passenger and freight, urban and non-urban sectors.
