“The UNDP-led project will support resilience building and green recovery through repairing and retrofitting damaged education facilities in war affected areas, as part of the UNDP’s Resilience Building and Recovery Offer. Initial targets for funding were drawn from a list of 74 schools distributed over 12 municipalities that are in need of urgent repairs. The list was issued by Ukraine’s Ministry of Education,” informed the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine.
It is noted that the financial contribution of the German government will help the Ukrainian government to repair 12 schools in five regions – Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Rivne, Sumy and Chernihiv. Thanks to this, more than 3,000 students will be able to return to education.
“UNDP teams have already started visiting each building and assessing its exact rehabilitation needs. An expedited procurement process will identify group of companies to undertake the repair work, which will be done in full compliance with national legislation and Eurocode 8, adhering to Build Back Better principles,” said UNDP Resident Representative in Ukraine Jaco Cilliers.
