Опис програми | Program Description

Офіс перехідних ініціатив (OTI) Агентства США з міжнародного розвитку (USAID) працює в Україні з 2014 року, допомагаючи підтримувати її демократичну та європейську трансформацію. Спочатку зосереджуючись на стабілізаційних потребах і кризі переміщення внаслідок вторгнення Росії в східну Україну, Ініціатива зі зміцнення довіри в Україні (UCBI) OTI та UCBI II скоригували цілі, щоб усе більше зосереджуватися на зміцненні довіри на місцях щодо процесів реформ на національному рівні, посилюючи об’єднуючі наративи, засновані на демократичних принципах. і громадянські цінності, а також усунення нових загроз стабільності. У лютому 2022 року OTI запустила UCBI III як механізм реагування на випадок надзвичайних ситуацій для подолання наслідків жорстокого та невиправданого вторгнення Росії. Наразі UCBI III має чотири цілі: 1) сприяти тому, щоб українські голоси зміцнювали підтримку єдності, демократії та незалежності України; 2) Дати можливість уряду та громадянському суспільству в ключових областях швидко реагувати на критичні пріоритети, викликані війною; 3) Мобілізувати українців навколо спільних цінностей, які підтримують єдність для формування майбутнього країни; 4) Сприяти зародженню зусиль щодо національного оздоровлення та боротьби зі звірствами. /The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) has been in Ukraine since 2014, helping support its democratic and European transformation. Initially focusing on stabilization needs and the displacement crisis resulting from Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine, OTI’s Ukraine Confidence Building Initiative (UCBI) and UCBI II adjusted objectives to focus increasingly on building local confidence around national-level reform processes, amplifying unifying narratives grounded in democratic and civic values, and addressing nascent threats to stability. In February 2022, OTI launched UCBI III as a contingency response mechanism to address the impacts of Russia’s brutal and unjustified invasion. UCBI III currently programs towards four objectives: 1) Enable Ukrainian voices to build support for Ukraine’s unity, democracy, and independence; 2) Enable government and civil society in key areas to rapidly respond to critical priorities caused by the war; 3) Mobilize Ukrainians around shared values that maintain unity to shape the country’s future; and 4) Contribute to nascent efforts for national healing and addressing atrocities.
