Mission and objectives

UNDP supports strategic capacity development initiatives to promote inclusive growth and sustainable human development. Together with national, regional and local authorities, civil societies, private sector, UNDP strives to support Ukraine in its efforts to eliminate poverty, develop people’s capacity, achieve equitable results, sustain the environment, and advance democratic governance. UNDP is in line with 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to achieve national strategic capacity development.


UNDP works in more than 170 countries and territories. It is one of the leading multilateral development agencies contributing to the eradication of poverty and the reduction of inequality and exclusion. In addition to supporting national processes to accelerate progress in human development, it is also noted for the leading role it plays in crisis response and early recovery. This is especially true in Ukraine, where the UNDP Resilience Building and Recovery Programme for the country seeks to support national authorities, civil society and communities through the ongoing war, modelling a humanitarian-development-peace nexus approach. Within this, UNDP Ukraine is implementing a major project to support frontline towns and areas, which were under temporary military control of the Russian Forces and are now back under Ukrainian Government control. The project has three related components aimed at supporting public safety and civil protection, facilitating safe and durable returns of IDPs and refugees, and laying the foundations for early recovery. These are: • Clearance of rubble and war debris, including explosive ordnance (EO) and other explosive remnants of war (ERW). • Mitigation and remediation of critical environmental threats such as asbestos from destroyed buildings, hospital and industrial waste, sewage and chemicals leaching into the water table or water supply, etc. • Restoration of essential utility services, including power supply, water and sanitation, communications and waste management.
