Recovery assessment

Ukrainian authorities estimate that in 2024 alone the country will need about $15 billion for urgent priority recovery and recovery measures.

RDNA3 notes that while about $5.5 billion of these funding needs have already been met by international partners of Ukraine, and from its own budget, about $9.5 billion remains unsupported by financing.

The RDNA3 assessment shows that direct damage in Ukraine amounted to almost $152 billion, with the most affected sectors being housing, transport, trade and industry, energy and agriculture.

The greatest damage is concentrated in Donetsk, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Zaporozhye, Kherson and Kiev regions – those areas where the greatest damage was recorded in the preliminary assessment.
