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.



Conclusions, lessons and recommendations

Since 1997, Ukraine has registered substantial social and economic progress. Inflation has been much reduced; the economy is bouncing back; public finance has been put on a sound footing; the regulatory setting is improved; local governments are gradually being empowered; and institutions, both public and private, are gradually being reformed. UNDP has contributed to this progress by assisting in the process of policy change, by building better planning and strategy development capacity, by raising awareness of issues critical to human development, by helping build networks linking government, civil society and the private sector, and by providing financial and organizational support to an array of pilot projects designed to demonstrate new ways of addressing human development challenges.
