Today Ukraine is facing its most serious challenges since achieving independence in 1991. As the consequences of the conflict in the east of Ukraine, the uncertainty of the social and economic developments is remined in the entire country. Municipal communities, particularly in the peripheral regions and disadvantaged rural areas, are facing many social and environmental challenges and lack of capacities and models to actively participate in the development process. One of the main issues Ukraine suffers from is environmental problem. Under an outdated and highly polluting industrial sector, protection of natural areas is limited and other challenges related to environmental sustainability are raising. Municipal communities need to focus on rehabilitating basic social and communal infrastructure, including in the areas of health, energy efficiency, water supply and the environment. 
UNDP supports strategic capacity development initiatives to promote inclusive growth and sustainable human development. Together with national, regional and local authorities, civil societies, private sector, UNDP strives to support Ukraine in its efforts to eliminate poverty, develop people’s capacity, achieve equitable results, sustain the environment, and advance democratic governance. UNDP is in line with 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to achieve national strategic capacity development. One of the strategic priorities of UNDP Ukraine is to expand cooperation with International Financial Institutions (IFIs), in particular technical assistance to the final beneficiaries in loans implementation.
