Democratic Governance

  • Enhanced Public Sector Transparency and IntegrityThe Project supports the establishment of the strong corruption prevention mechanism in the country. Its goal is to put into practice key preventive anti-corruption instruments: an asset declaration system for public officials, conflict of interest regulation, and analysis of anti-corruption risks. The Project works towards developing capabilities of key anti-corruption agencies, training public officials, and cooperating with CSOs at national and local levels.

It works to strengthen capacities of civil society organizations to be resilient and effective promoters of democratic values, support human rights actors to promote and defend human rights in Ukraine, as well as foster participatory and result-driven Government-CSO dialogue. We support the emergence of an open and democratic society which is based on the rule of law, and is governed by the values of human rights supremacy, openness and accountability at all levels of government.

Democratic Governance is a prerequisite for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Good democratic governance stems from the encounter between a representative, well-run state on one hand and informed, engaged, active citizens on the other. UNDP assists the Governemnt of Ukraine in advancing the democratic policies and practices needed to accelerate progress on human development, by:

  • Advancing administrative and territorial reforms;
  • Empowering civil society;
  • Promoting decentralization and local governance;
  • Advocating for human rights and gender equality;
  • Ensuring that all Ukrainian citizens can enjoy access to justice; and
  • Supporting legal empowerment of disadvantaged and vulnerable groups and anti-corruption.
