Moldova: Climate-friendly construction

The former Soviet republic of Moldova depends heavily on Russia for its energy, 45 percent of which is used in the housing sector.

The use of new technology in the construction of energy-efficient houses can help shift the balance, while creating jobs and skills development opportunities at the same time.
