This report has been prepared as part of the multi-phase assessment mission of the Peace Support Ukraine project by the Department of Peace Operations (DPO) of the Romanian Peace Institute (PATRIR) together with partners in Ukraine and in the diaspora. Although the full assessment will analyze the period between July 2022 and November 2022, this document shares preliminary findings to inform further strategic analysis of the developing situation on the ground and concrete actions to strengthen the international response to sustaining efforts by Ukrainian civil society, state and nonstate actors,
while ensuring comprehensive inclusion of Ukrainian voices. It represents the first part of a two-stage review of the needs, challenges, opportunities and critical areas of action identified by Ukrainian civil society organizations, experts, local authorities and national government institutions addressing the impact of the invasion and war on the people of Ukraine. As well as identifying key priorities for peacebuilding and addressing the impact of the armed conflict, invasion and temporary occupation of Ukrainian territories now, during the war, the report also identifies key measures needed to prepare now to be able to address critical needs for peacebuilding, stabilization and post-war recovery and peace consolidation after the ending of the war.
