The Programme

The EUACI is a joint EU and Government of Denmark-financed programme aimed at supporting Ukraine in its efforts to reduce corruption at the national and local level through the empowerment of citizens, civil society and state institutions. 

In 2024, a new phase of the EUACI is launched. The EUACI strategic objectives are that: corruption in Ukraine is reduced; Ukraine advances with anti-corruption reform; and reconstruction in war-affected areas of Ukraine is implemented within a framework that incorporates transparency, accountability and integrity.

The EUACI has four intervention areas, namely:

  • Support to independent state institutions fighting and preventing corruption;
  • Transparency and accountability of the reconstruction process;
  • Support cities in war-affected areas in enhancing integrity in the reconstruction process;
  • Civil society and media in preventing and fighting corruption.

The Program’s implementation is aligned with the principles of Doing Development Differently (DDD). DDD prioritises systematic use of adaptive management based on structured, short-cycle learning mechanisms and local problem-driven analysis, as well as ensuring a comprehensive approach to the use of the full range of Danish instruments. To enhance monitoring oversight as well as to improve the learning aspect of MEAL (monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning), there is a need to strengthen the independent MEAL processes of the EUACI.
