Through its Democratic Governance Programme, UNDP Ukraine assists the government, civil society and people of Ukraine in advancing democratic policies and practices needed to accelerate progress on sustainable human development and human rights promotion. This includes advocating for human rights and gender equality, supporting anti-corruption efforts, ensuring that all Ukrainian citizens can protect their rights, strengthening parliament, and empowering civil society and youth activists.
In 2020, UNDP Ukraine expanded its governance portfolio to include new initiatives and successfully building on previous pilots and smaller but scalable interventions. With the advent of new political leadership in 2019, Ukraine has intensified its drive towards digitalisation of state services – well in line with the Presidential commitment to deliver on the “Your State in Your Smartphone” initiative. UNDP Ukraine has been working in the fields of administrative service re-modelling, social innovation and digitalisation, open data and better digital governance for over 15 years now. In 2020, UNDP Ukraine plans to launch a new programme to support the digital transformation in the country that will last for three years and aims to assist the Government of Ukraine not only in delivering state services online or through a mobile platform but also in having a Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) to digitalisation policy design.
The mentioned programme also includes a set of activities aimed at developing the capacity of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine (MDT) to approach digital transformation policy design and implementation. In partnership with the UNDP Accelerator Lab in Ukraine, the programme will pilot a Policy lab for the Ministry. The main purpose of this pilot is to promote the application of public sector innovation methods, test the organisational model and functions of a Lab, and maintain the focus on testing, experimenting and co-designing public policies with a wide range of stakeholders and citizens and interest groups.
The “MDT Policy Lab ver 1.0” will comprise three innovation consultants who will be working as a team. The work of the initial 3-expert-strong “MDT Policy Lab ver 1.0” will include but shall not be limited to the following wider subject-areas:
The Policy Lab will initially run between November 2020 and March 2021 and will work horizontally with all MDT teams, departments and subdivisions. Lessons learnt and experiences assessed at the end of the period will prompt continuation of the engagement or review of cooperation modalities. The team will be tasked with five broad thematic “project streams” and deliver results as agreed by UNDP in consultation with the Ministry.
