Crisis response in Ukraine
As the conflict continues in Ukraine, millions of people across the country have been left without access to basic services such as electricity and heating. With much of the country's infrastructure destroyed or severely damaged, providing support to affected communities is an urgent priority for the government of Ukraine as well as international organizations and governments around the world.

To support response and recovery efforts, UNOPS is working closely with the UN family, Ukraine’s national and municipal governments, and other local and international partners to provide much-needed assistance to communities impacted by the ongoing conflict.
Together with our partners, we are helping identify and address the most urgent needs in affected communities, with the goal of providing effective and efficient assistance that can help improve people's lives.
With our expertise in providing emergency procurement services, we’re helping to deliver essential equipment and supplies to vulnerable communities throughout the country.
Given the extensive destruction of infrastructure in Ukraine as a result of the ongoing conflict, UNOPS is also supporting early recovery and reconstruction efforts in Ukraine. This includes the rehabilitation of schools and public infrastructure, as well as efforts to build resilience and ensure the country is able to rebuild a sustainable and inclusive future for its people.
UNOPS is committed to supporting the Ukrainian people through early recovery and reconstruction efforts, with an eye on long-term, sustainable reconstruction. We will continue to work with our partners to address the issues and provide vital assistance to those in need for as long as it takes.
