Recovery & Peacebuilding

The Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme (RPP) is the unifying framework for eight projects funded for 2017 by nine international partners. The Programme addresses priority needs in eastern Ukraine after armed conflict erupted in the spring of 2014, and the opportunities that have arisen from the Minsk Protocol of September 2014 and the renewal of its cease-fire provisions in February 2015.

The long-term goal for eastern Ukraine is economic prosperity and lasting peace. To recover from conflict and build a foundation for lasting peace the deep-rooted economic and governance problems that are the underlying causes of the conflict must be addressed and reconciliation must be achieved among conflict-affected people and communities. As intermediate goals to address the causes, inclusive, responsive and participatory local governance requires development; social and productive infrastructure must be rebuilt and the economy redeveloped so that people’s livelihoods and wellbeing will improve; and conflict-affected communities must regain the safety and social cohesion that has been lost in recent years.

The RPP is comprised of the following three substantive components:

• Component 1: Economic Recovery and Restoration of Critical Infrastructure;

• Component 2: Local Governance and Decentralization Reform;

• Component 3: Community Security and Social Cohesion.

Improving community security and access to justice

In 2017, UNDP supported more than 50 local initiatives aimed at improving community security and local development. 

  • Two legal aid offices at the crossing points in Novotroitske and Mariinka
  • Over 1,200 survivors of sexual and gender-based violence received legal aid and psychological assistance
  • Emergency response services in 24 towns installed secure and reliable conference call systems, which ensure effective and well-coordinated security services and minimal response times
