Evaluation of CIDA's Ukraine Program from 2004 to 2009

In 2004, CIDA responded to Ukraine's renewed efforts for economic and political reform, following the country's Orange Revolution. The program focused 95 percent of its funding to support development in two areas reflecting the shared goals of Canada and Ukraine: sustainable economic growth and democratic development. By 2009, CIDA had invested more than $99 million in programs to benefit Ukraine's 45 million people, making Canada Ukraine's fourth- largest provider of official development assistance since 2004.

Why conduct this evaluation?

This evaluation assessed the performance and the results achieved by CIDA's Ukraine Program between 2004 and 2009. The evaluation focused on a sample of 20 projects, representing 57 percent of total program investments.

What did the evaluation find?

The evaluation found CIDA's Ukraine Program to be highly effective in achieving measurable results and that CIDA's projects in Ukraine had become models at CIDA, in Ukraine, and internationally.

The program needs to find more effective entry points to achieve gender equality results, and to devote more sustained attention to environmental sustainability.

How is the Ukraine Program responding?
