Investment Promotion Trainer for USAID ERA

  1. Project Background:

The purpose of the USAID Economic Resilience Activity (ERA) is to improve the overall economic resilience of eastern Ukraine. Resilience is “the ability of people, households, communities, countries, and systems to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in a manner that reduces chronic vulnerability and facilitates inclusive growth.” This activity aims to improve the economic resilience of eastern Ukraine through accomplishing the following objectives:

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; and

Transformation: working with coalitions and leaders to articulate a vision for the future and put in place a modern, diverse, 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 Donetsk and Luhansk oblast, but will also be active in the surrounding oblasts and throughout Ukraine as required to achieve the objectives.
