In December 2022, we launched a project to record the damage caused to the Kharkiv region’s natural environment due to hostilities.

As a result of the project, we plan to create a geodatabase of environmental damage in the Kharkiv region based on the analysis of satellite imagery and ground surveys. It will allow downloading and using digital maps of environmental damage and predicted hazards created using open remote sensing data (satellite images).

This project is being implemented within the framework of the Initiative for the Development of Environmental Policy and Advocacy in Ukraine, implemented by the International Renaissance Foundation with financial support from Sweden.
