USE is implemented on an annual basis and is designed to improve the understanding of societal dynamics in government-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and neighboring Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia oblasts. Over 6,000 residents in eastern Ukraine, including along the contact line of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, took part in the survey. The findings provide a unique insight into the state of social cohesion, and also identify entry points for strengthening social cohesion in order to support recovery efforts and build a foundation for a peaceful and prosperous Ukraine. USE is jointly implemented by three UN entities, UNDP, UNICEF and IOM, under the overall direction of the Office of the United Nations Resident Coordinator, and with financial support from the European Union. USE and is one of the UN’s evidence-based knowledge products for joint analysis and programming in Ukraine. USE data, analysis and information briefs are available in Ukrainian, Russian and English at use.scoreforpeace.org. For more information contact us at [email protected].
