The Economic Resilience Activity (ERA) promotes the development of a resilient, inclusive, and growth-oriented economy in eastern Ukraine. ERA empowers eastern Ukrainians to establish and grow micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in promising economic sectors, to innovate, and to expand to new markets across Ukraine, the European Union (EU), and other new international markets. ERA emphasizes the inclusion of internally displaced persons (IDPs), women, young adults, Roma, veterans, the eldery, and other vulnerable groups among its beneficiaries to ensure that they also share in the region’s economic success. ERA is also working with local and regional stakeholders to define a viable vision for the future of the region’s economy.
ERA’s work is centered on three pillars:
- Inclusion: building the capabilities of vulnerable populations to capitalize on entrepreneurial and MSME economic opportunities;
- Growth: helping micro, small, and medium businesses innovate, invest, and expand markets;
- Transformation: working with coalitions and leaders to articulate a vision for the future and put in place a modern, diverse, and SME-friendly economy.
By accomplishing these objectives, the economy of eastern Ukraine will be more diversified, more integrated with the rest of Ukraine, less dependent on Russia, and the region’s residents will be better equipped to compete for the jobs of the future, thereby improving the economic resilience of the region. The activity will work primarily in the oblasts most affected by Russia’s aggression, Donetsk and Luhansk—together known as the “Donbas” region—but will also be active in the surrounding oblasts and throughout Ukraine as required to achieve the objectives.
