Rapid assessment: impact of the war in Ukraine on Women’s civil society organisations

To better understand the situation for women’s CSOs after the beginning of the Russian aggression in Ukraine, UN Women has conducted a rapid survey to help inform the decision-making of national and international stakeholders, and advocate for the support of civil society during the war.

The survey was distributed online among 67 civil society organisations from across the country, between 4 and 10 March. According to the Survey, the majority of CSOs are facing a variety of challenges including a lack of funds, supply chain issues and an inability to move around in communities as needed to support their beneficiaries. CSOs have had to make significant adjustments to their programmes and operations in response to the crisis. 66% of surveyed CSOs are now providing services and interventions that they have not worked on before, 57% have been providing remote support to beneficiaries and over 52% of surveyed CSOs are re-allocating funds to new/ different priorities.
