The Multi-agency Donor Coordination Platform for Ukraine was established following a decision of G7 leaders taken on 12 December 2022 (click here to read their statement).
The Platform’s mandate is to coordinate the support for Ukraine’s immediate financing needs and future economic recovery and reconstruction across different sources and established instruments for financing, complementing existing tracks (e.g. the G7 finance track, G7 coordination group on energy infrastructure, IFI coordination group). Its aim is also to direct resources in a coherent, transparent, and inclusive manner.
The Platform works closely with Ukrainian authorities to define, prioritise, and sequence strategic needs, in line with Ukraine’s reform ambitions, with the conditions for financing and structural support of the major donors, and in line with Ukraine’s European path (click here to learn more about actions facilitated by the Platform)
At its launch, the Steering Committee of the Multi-agency Donor Coordination Platform for Ukraine brought together senior officials from Ukraine, the EU, G7 countries, as well as international financial institutions. In February 2024, the Steering Committee Members agreed by consensus to enlarge the participation to four new Members : Republic of Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and six new Observers : Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Spain. The Steering Committee governs the Platform on a consensus basis. It meets regularly.
Senior officials from the United States, the European Commission, and Ukraine co-chair the Steering Committee, notably Minister of Finance of Ukraine Serhii Marchenko, Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics Daleep Singh on behalf of the United States and Director General Gert Jan Koopman of the Directorate-General for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations of the European Commission, on behalf of the European Union. The three chairs collaborate in close coordination with the G7 Presidency.
The Platform and its Steering Committee are supported by a technical Secretariat, which provides administrative assistance and coordination across the Platform. It is led by a Head of Secretariat Anna Jarosz Friis (European Commission) and a Deputy Kateryna Elishyieva (Government of Ukraine, Ministry of Finance).
The Secretariat operates both in Brussels and Kyiv. The Brussels office is hosted by the Directorate General for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations of the European Commission, and the Kyiv office by the Reform Delivery Office of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, led by Tetyana Kovtun.
