Assessment of Development Results - Ukraine

image of Assessment of Development Results - Ukraine

This report presents an assessment of the key development results in Ukraine in the last five to seven years, focusing on the contribution the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has made towards them. In the first part of the 1990s,Ukraine’s transition took place against the backdrop of substantial economic and social decline. Since 1999, recovery has taken hold, and the economic growth performance has been impressive in recent years. Still, Ukraine continues to operate far below its human development potential, especially in comparison to its European neighbours.



UNDP’s strategic contribution

UNDP operations in Ukraine started in 1993, and much of its first years were devoted to establishing the Resident Mission, forging initial partnerships and responding to a variety of Government assistance requests. UNDP assistance prior to the commencement of the first Country Cooperation Framework (CCF-I) was covered by the first Country Strategy Note (1995-1997), prepared in 1995. A review in 1996 of UNDP assistance during the 1993-1996 period, carried out in preparation for planning for the CCF-I, observed that UNDP’s priorities were rather general and that there was a need for UNDP to create a niche to pursue policy dialogue on selected areas of SHD, and to further develop national capacities.
