Ukraine: 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan Summary [EN/UA/RU]

Five years into an increasingly protracted and complex crisis in eastern Ukraine, a multi-year strategy for 2019 and 2020 has been developed. While the alleviation of suffering of civilians through coherent and timely humanitarian action and protection support is paramount, this Strategy also seeks better collaboration across different institutional boundaries to reduce needs over time and build people’s resilience.
Humanitarian partners in Ukraine propose to complement the Government-led response and other humanitarian interventions with a focused and highly prioritised Response Plan totalling US$162 million to assist 2.3 million most vulnerable men, women and children on both sides of the ‘contact line’ in 2019. Of this, US$135 million has been identified as a critical priority requirement.
This two-year Strategy embraces the Humanitarian Development Nexus (HDN) and advocates for recovery and development efforts to be scaled up. The fertile ground for HDN in Ukraine and the three “Collective Outcomes” established in the Strategy provide an opportune avenue and shared aspiration towards which humanitarian, recovery and development actors will contribute in the coming years.
