Reform Support Teams programme launched in Ukraine

The Government of Ukraine - with the support of international donors as well as the EBRD and the EU - is strengthening its drive to #MakeReformsHappen with the introduction of dedicated teams to help with reform delivery and implementation of Ukraine's Public Administration Reform Strategy 2016-2020.

The Reform Support Teams (RSTs) are formed of professionals from outside the Ukrainian civil service and will work in ministries on a temporary basis to implement priority reforms and transform the ministries themselves. The programme will first be rolled out at the Ministries of Finance, Economic Development and Trade, Infrastructure and Agrarian Policy and Food. Following a pilot phase, other ministries and state agencies are encouraged to join the programme on the basis of sectoral strategies.

The aim of the RSTs is to support the implementation of reforms through increased capacity, improved coordination and close oversight, combining strong commitment of Ukraine’s leadership with national and international experts’ advice.
