UNDP is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals and UN Conventions ratified by Ukraine. The Programme aims to combat poverty in rural areas by implementing effective models of social and economic development and environmental development, as well as by supporting democratic processes, institutions and networks.

UNDP helps and strengthens at the national and local level those partners who develop sustainable solutions to ensure comprehensive national, regional and local development. UNDP achieves its goals in the partnership with the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, other UN agencies, development agencies, civil society, and local communities. The Programme helps to find Ukrainian solutions to global and national development challenges through a number of initiatives based on the UNDP experience and comparative advantages.

Building peace and rebuilding conflict-affected areas, as well as supporting internally displaced persons (IDPs), are among the top priorities of UNDP in Ukraine during the full-scale war.
Working in close collaboration with international partners and the Government of Ukraine, the UNDP Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme applies an integrated approach that takes into account the needs of people in need and promotes social cohesion and understanding, while preventing excessive social burden on host communities.
