Position paper

Sharing the costs of rehabilitation of civilian property damaged during the conflict

Published 08. Dec 2017
Four years into the conflict in eastern Ukraine, the need of the most vulnerable conflict-affected people for permanent and durable shelter solutions is becoming more and more acute.

Ukraine has yet to take steps to assess and provide compensation for conflict-related damages to housing, land and property. Many people cannot even access humanitarian assistance since they lack title documents. The government should eliminate barriers to obtain property documentation for the conflict-affected population.
