А letter the Ukrainian-American Environmental Association to the Transition Team working for U.S. President-elect B
We are writing to invite your suggestions for recommendations to be included in a letter the Ukrainian-American Environmental Association is contemplating sending to the Transition Team working for U.S. President-elect Barack Obama.
That is, we are seeking your thoughts on policy initiatives the new Obama Administration can take to support environmental protection and/or sustainable energy development in Ukraine.
 
Some ideas, for example, that we are considering include:
 
--increasing exchange programs for Ukrainian students, researchers, business representatives, and government officials interested in studying U.S. environmental policy and sustainable energy experience;
 
--including more information on environmental and energy policy issues on Ukrainian broadcasts sponsored by Voice of America or Radio Free Europe – perhaps including more ideas about what individual persons, businesses, and local communities can do to reduce energy use and costs;
 
--making the new U.S. embassy in Kyiv a model of energy efficiency and renewable energy use which can be toured and studied by Ukrainian architects and builders and students;
 
--assisting Ukrainian government officials to design and implement energy efficiency standards for appliances, lighting, buildings, automobiles, industrial processes, and  agriculture based on the best of U.S. experience;
 
--facilitating investments in the Ukrainian marketplace by U.S. environmental, renewable energy, and energy efficiency businesses as well as joint ventures by U.S. and Ukrainian firms working in these fields;
 
We will likely draft the proposed letter on or about December 8 so we would welcome any suggestions by that date.
 
If you think that you (as either an individual or as an organization), might like to review the letter for possible sign-on, please let us know; we will send the letter to those interested (both Ukrainians and Americans).
 
We hope to mail the letter on December 15.
We look forward to hearing from you.
 
Thank you.
