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 role in fostering progress: Key outcomes

Policy reform to inspire poverty reduction UNDP’s main contribution to poverty reduction has been in assisting the Government to reform the legal and policy environment to foster economic recovery, spur civic participation, enhance labour market flexibility, develop commercial agriculture, provide equal gender opportunities and formulate policies to respond to HIV/AIDS. The Government has come to adopt various elements of UNDP’s distinctive human development perspective on poverty reduction, including the measurement of multiple dimensions of poverty, inclusion of the poor in decision making, consideration of gender concerns, and drawing on lessons from grassroots experience to inform policy making. Increasingly, strategic planning efforts are guided by MDG-linked poverty reduction targets, rather than by sector-wide strategic initiatives.
