The impact of climate change is already visible throughout Ukraine, and rural areas are most vulnerable to its displays as rising temperatures, changes in rainfall, and natural weather events. All this directly affects agriculture and the quality of life in the village.

To assess the preparedness of Ukrainians for stable and effective development in the face of climate change, scientists and experts from the Institute of Economics and Forecasting of NASU and the Ukrainian Rural Development Network conducted a socio-economic analysis for six united territorial communities: Buzhanska (Cherkasy region), Vovkovynetska (Khmelnytsky region), Vytvytska (Ivano-Frankivsk region), Shumska (Ternopil region), Losynivka (Chernihiv region) and Novoslobidska (Sumy region).

The experts conducted a SWOT analysis and suggested specific measures for a more balanced development of each community. This should help create conditions for increasing the incomes of villagers and improving the socio-economic situation in communities.
