Human Impact Assessment

June 12, 2023

The objective of the Human Impact Assessment is to evaluate the overall impact of the war in Ukraine on people, their living conditions, health, access to education, livelihoods, food security, social status, gender equality and women's empowerment, and evolution of multi-dimensional poverty and human development.

This report considers the impact of the war across all areas of Ukraine which were under the control of the Government of Ukraine at the time of assessment. It includes all population groups in both rural and urban areas, with a particular focus on selected groups (women, internally displaced persons, older persons, persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, and Roma communities).

This assessment is a UNDP-led joint initiative of the United Nations, implemented at the request of the Government of Ukraine. Representatives from the following UN agencies contributed to Human Impact Assessment report development: UNICEF, WFP, FAO, OHCHR, UNFPA, UNWOMEN, IOM, UNDP, UNAIDS, UNHCR, WHO, and OCHA with the Resident Coordinator’s Office support. The report was developed by IMPACT Initiatives and Centre for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development.
