The United Nations in Ukraine works with the Government and the people of Ukraine to build a culture of dignity, through understanding of and respect for human rights, towards a peaceful and transformed Ukraine.
The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Ukraine is composed of representatives of 17 UN funds and programmes, specialized agencies and other UN entities accredited to Ukraine as well as representatives of the Bretton Woods institutions.
All members of the United Nations system in Ukraine - the FAO, ILO, IOM, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNICEF, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNOCHA, UNODC, UNV, UN Women, WFP, WHO, and the World Bank - are united by one collective vision and approach which aims to better meet the needs of the population, including the new and more demanding humanitarian, socioeconomic, governance, security and political needs in the short, medium and long-term.
Responding to the challenges created by recent developments in the country, the UN in Ukraine is working in four directions simultaneously, in short, medium and long-term programs:
- Humanitarian Response, including for conflict-affected regions and for internally-displaced persons (IDPs);
- Recovery, stabilization and rehabilitation for the East and other regions;
- Supporting longer-term country-wide governance reforms to promote the rule of law and strengthen social stability and democratic governance;
- Advising and assisting the Government of Ukraine on the implementation of recommendations from the UN human rights mechanisms, as well as those made through the reports of the UN Human Rights Mission in Ukraine.
