24.02.2021

As a result of the Steering Committee meeting held on 23 December 2020, among other things, the Updated UMIP Project List was approved. Due to the exclusion of some projects from UMIP, as well as clarification of the amount of funding for previously approved projects, there is currently an unallocated amount of the loan, which allows to invite new participants to join UMIP.

With reference to previous negotiations held with EIB, projects in the sector of water supply and waste-water treatment, as well as for solid waste management aimed at resolving the problematic issues of the Azov region (Donetsk region – territories controlled by the Government of Ukraine, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions) are invited to participate in the UMIP.

  • 8 years for projects in the field of water supply and waste-water treatment дення.

The cost of the project must be at least 10 million euros.

Implementation of the project under UMIP will require co-financing from the Final Beneficiary in the amount necessary to cover VAT.
