UNDP's response

War in


The war in Ukraine is devastating communities and threatening the lives of millions. UNDP teams have been on the ground throughout this crisis, helping to save lives and support relief efforts, but the needs are rapidly increasing.

Based on three decades of trusted partnership with the Government of Ukraine, UNDP has been working with municipalities, civil society organizations, and business associations across the country. Now, leveraging this extensive network and working as part of the coordinated UN response, we have scaled up support to the people of Ukraine. We’re focusing on immediate crisis response, maintaining core government functions and laying the groundwork for early recovery. We are also supporting emergency relief in neighbouring countries, ensuring a strong focus on resilience and development for the millions of displaced people who have fled the violence.
