IAS Residential Fellow Associate Professor Mariia Olkhova delivers a seminar on her research - 

Kharkiv is the second-largest city and municipality in Ukraine with a population is about 1,4 million inhabitants. The crucial topic is urban mobility optimization in Ukrainian cities, considering war conditions and the continuous danger and damage of shelling. There was a backlog of policies and measures contributing to the sustainable development of the city and reducing the negative impact of transport on the environment before the war. But the Russian invasion from the first days into the territory of Kharkiv and the Kharkiv region completely changed all plans. There is the destruction of the city's infrastructure, including transport, radical change in demographic indicators, and the destruction of economics as the result of the war. But it is a unique chance to rebuild the city transport system taking into account sustainable strategies, best practices and international support.
