Coordination Manager for International Projects

to provide expertise to the Ministry of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine (MinRestoration)


Background and context

Supporting anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine is a high political priority for the European Union and Denmark. By combating corruption, the EU contributes to the consolidation of democracy and economic growth of Ukraine, as well as the successful approximation of Ukraine with the EU.

The large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine changed the context in which the EUACI is working. To address new challenges, the EUACI revised its work plan and decided to focus on several new topics, including the topic of transparent and accountable management of upcoming reconstruction aid.

The topic of reconstruction aid and integrity is one of the key activities of the program for many months to come, both at the national and local levels and across the three components of the EUACI. The Government of Ukraine will be the key counterpart of the EUACI in this area.

Acknowledging the importance of the coordinated and well-managed process of the post-war recovery, the Government of Ukraine in December 2022 decided to merge two Ministries mandated to work on different aspects of this process (the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Ministry of Territorial and Regional Development) into the consolidated Ministry of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine (hereinafter – the Ministry).

To support Ukrainian government’s efforts to effectively manage the process of the war-time reconstruction and post-war recovery and to ensure that transparency and integrity considerations are taken into account, the EUACI has engaged with the Ministry to establish the compact Integrity Support Group (hereinafter – ISG) consisting of several experts fully embedded into the Ministry work.

The Ministry is implementing a number of anti-corruption and good-governance initiatives in their day-to-day activities and its policies with the support of various donors and expert NGOs and other organizations. There is a need to ensure that these initiatives and efforts are well-synchronized and systematic. While the Ministry should take the lead on coordination efforts, there is a need to provide the Ministry with support to this end. This support will be provided as part of the ISG.
