Voices of Ukraine Monitor
Understanding the will of the Ukrainian people is critical in this next phase of the war.
As of November 2022, there have been more than 70 billion dollars in financial and humanitarian commitments to Ukraine from governments around the world. Ensuring effective allocation and distribution of this life-saving humanitarian aid in Ukraine is essential to helping those most in need and sustaining funding commitments throughout the entirety of the war. The rapid influx of material and financial support since the start of the war has stretched Ukraine’s nascent anti-corruption efforts and threatens to reverse the pre-war achievements.
The EU and G7 countries lead this bilateral support and up until now, there has been no public data demonstrating that Ukrainians are actually receiving the life-saving goods or deposits required. Most importantly, Ukrainians themselves have limited direct feedback mechanisms with which to express what their needs are, how their needs are being met, and what reconstruction should look like.
To fill this evidence gap, RIWI has created the Voices of Ukraine Monitor to understand individual experiences across all Oblasts in Ukraine. The Monitor will ask individuals to anonymously share their availability of services, their understanding of who is helping them, and their support for the continued fight against Russia. With these Ukraine data, the government of Ukraine, governments funding Ukraine, humanitarian and development organizations, and Ukrainians themselves will have a primary source of information about what Ukrainians really need and want.
