  • Oleksandr Kubrakov: Ukraine launches work with partners on RDNA3

    Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, announced the start of work by the Government of Ukraine, the World Bank, the European Commission, the United Nations and other partners on the third Rapid Damage and Recovery Needs Assessment (RDNA3). This will be an updated assessment of the consequences of the russian invasion for the period from 24 February 2022 to 31 December 2023.

    “Thanks to the first and second RDNAs, we have been able to compile, structure and start implementing rapid recovery projects in priority areas for 2023, as well as create a framework and the ability to plan for Ukraine’s further recovery in the medium term. In 2024, we want to focus on projects that will contribute to economic recovery and job creation. Such a report will allow us to clearly identify recovery needs and coordinate financial assistance,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov.

    According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the RDNA3 will show the total level of losses as of 1 January 2024, the cost of recovery based on the “build back better” principle, the agreed priority areas of recovery in 2024 and in the medium term until 2027, and reforms to attract the private sector. The Deputy Prime Minister noted that the RDNA3 would incorporate relevant tasks from the Multi-Donor Coordination Platform for Ukraine and the Ukraine Plan.

    For her part, Anna Yurchenko, Deputy Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine for European Integration, noted that in 2022 the Ukrainian authorities focused on survival projects, and in 2023 they started implementing recovery projects and achieved tangible results in priority areas.

    “We are launching a series of workshops to help us adjust our priorities and their coverage. The priority areas are: energy, municipal infrastructure and utilities, transport, social infrastructure, private sector, cross-cutting areas such as humanitarian demining, and digitalisation,” she said.

    The RDNA3 follows an internationally recognised methodology and will also set out the Government’s investment priorities for recovery and reconstruction for 2024.

    The report will provide a rapid, consistent and transparent cross-sectoral assessment of damage, loss, recovery and reconstruction needs and priorities for 2024. It will focus on assessing the impact of the war and war-related recovery and reconstruction.
