EU and UNDP open four community project offices in east Ukraine

December 8, 2021

On 7 December, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine, with the financial support of the European Union, opened project offices in four communities in eastern Ukraine. Starting from December, the offices will operate in Bakhmut and Vuhledar in Donetsk Oblast, and Popasna and Kreminna in Luhansk Oblast.

The project offices will operate under city councils and are part of a UN Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme initiative to implement a project-oriented development management model. 

The project offices will provide recommendations on local development and foreign economic policy and on developing entrepreneurship and industry. They will also conduct legal, financial, and organisational analysis of projects or commercial proposals to increase investment efficiency and promote investment itself. The centres will also assist in the organisation of fora, seminars, focus groups, round tables and other events.
