The project team includes 3 international experts and 5 Ukrainian specialists, and the duration of the project is 12 months.  As part of the study, our team will conduct a comprehensive review and assessment of existing norms and standards of Ukraine, identify and analyze world best practices, and compare the Ukrainian situation with best practices, identifying "gaps" in the system. Based on this analysis and with the active involvement of stakeholders and organizations, the project team will develop an action plan for Ukraine on changes to the regulatory framework that would close the identified "gaps" and maximize the safety of Ukrainian roads at key stages of the infrastructure cycle: planning, design, construction and operation.
