CSOs submit their proposals to the Ukraine’s post-war recovery plan

August 31, 2022

On August 26, experts from CEDEM, ISAR Ednannia, UCIPR, participants of the Legal Reform Platform for CSOs and other civil society representatives took part in the presentation and discussion of proposals for the Action Plan for Post-War Recovery and Development of Ukraine from the civil society organizations.

CSO representatives prepared proposals within the Project Ukraine Civil Society Sectoral Support Activity. They were based on the provisions of the Legal Reforms Roadmap for CSOs and National Strategy for Civil Society Development in Ukraine, which should be implemented as a matter of priority in the conditions of martial law and post-war recovery of the country. In the preparation of these proposals, the work of experts of the Legal Reform Platform for CSOs was used.

They handed these developments over to the National Council for the Recovery of Ukraine from the War, a special body established by the President of Ukraine by his decree on April 21. As part of this council, 24 working groups developed an action plan for Ukraine’s post-war recovery and development. It contains proposals for priority reforms and strategic initiatives, as well as draft legal acts that need to be adopted and implemented for the effective work and recovery of Ukraine in the war and post-war periods. 

See the complete list here.

Among other things, experts from civil society organizations suggested that the National Council initiate a comprehensive security strategy. It should include upgrade of the military-industrial complex, protection of the civilian population, international security, etc. An appropriate working group should also be established, which will work within the National Council for the Recovery of Ukraine from the War. 

Developed proposals for the following draft sections of the action plan for the post-war recovery and development of Ukraine:

  1. Return of temporarily displaced citizens, in particular from abroad, and their integration into the social and economic life of the state:
  1. Functioning of the financial system, its reform and development:
  1. State administration:
  1. Digitization:
  1. Youth and sport:
  1. Social protection:
  1. Human Rights.
