UN Ukraine Annual Recovery Results Report 2023

15 April 2024

At a Glance

In 2023, the UN in Ukraine scaled up its support to recovery efforts across the country, implementing over US$500 million worth of initiatives and programmes ranging from supporting small businesses, repairing homes, schools, and hospitals to building new energy infrastructure and beyond. This is more than twice the previous year’s amount and brings the total expenditure to nearly $703 million since the UN started the implementation of the Transitional Framework in September 2022.

Throughout the year, the UN and partners ensured the installation of new heating, water, and energy infrastructure that served 6 million people; supported more than 2,100 small and medium businesses; repaired nearly 1,000 schools; trained almost 320,000 people with skills to help them find new jobs; cleared almost 200,000 metres2 of land of mines, explosives and debris; in addition to providing essential services, including primary health care to over 5.1 million women and children. To support long-term recovery, the UN further provided integrated policy advice and technical assistance to the Government, local authorities, communities and civil society organizations, including women-led groups on issues such as environment, agriculture, access to justice, human rights and gender equality.

The work was possible thanks to donors who contributed, between 2022 and 2023, nearly $1.1 billion of the total $1.9 billion the UN requested for our recovery programmes in Ukraine. In 2024, more support is required to enable the UN to continue implementing activities to promote inclusive community recovery and investments in human capital, ensuring that all people in Ukraine can contribute to and benefit from recovery efforts.
