Background
Background and Change Context

The UNDP Country Office in Ukraine sought to reposition itself strategically and realign its human resources to better respond to the Country Programme Document (CPD) 2018-2022 and the articulated need to work in a more integrated and collaborative manner to help Ukraine address interrelated development challenges and achieve sustainable development, particularly in those regions which have a high level of poverty.
The change process in UNDP Ukraine is anchored in two fundamental components: 1) Actively positioning UNDP for emerging opportunities arising for the SDG implementation, as reflected in the CPD  2018 – 2022, as well as implications of the UN development system reform; and 2) Adopting a new resource management paradigm, as the global funding landscape for development cooperation is transforming. As such, UNDP is systemically changing how its institutional activities are financed and Country Offices are compelled to unlock new business models that enable our programmes, projects, and services to create the development impact in a self-sustaining and scalable manner.
Drawing on the above, a new programme portfolio design has been developed whereby the CO will use three work streams, which will align existing project-level interventions behind programmatic portfolios supported by an Operations Team. These are: 1) Democratic Governance, 2) Environment and 3) Inclusive Development, Recovery and Peace Building
