Membership

At its launch, the Multi-agency Donor Coordination Platform brought together the Permanent Members (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 Temporary Members: Republic of Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and six new Annual Observers: Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Spain. In April 2024, they welcomed 3 new Annual Observers: Belgium, Finland, Switzerland.

What are the Membership Criteria ?

Temporary Members

New Steering Committee Annual Members would need to contribute since February 2022, or have committed to contribute, at least 0.1% of the country’s 2022 GDP and at least USD 1 billion in order to be considered for membership. This includes direct budget support, support to reconstruction and recovery projects, and other forms of financial assistance, but not military or humanitarian assistance, or financial contributions that have military purposes.

This new member would be temporary, participating in the Steering Committee as long as its assistance at this significant level continues to be disbursed, and therefore the need for coordination remains. For countries which are Member States of the European Union, only their bilateral assistance would be taken into account.

In order to ensure Ukraine’s economic recovery continues on its pro-market, democratic reform trajectory, Platform Members must be established democracies with market economies.

Annual Observers

Applicant countries should have contributed since February 2022, or have committed to contribute, substantially (at least 0.05% of the country’s 2022 GDP or at least USD 300 million) to financial and economic support to Ukraine. This includes direct budget support, support to reconstruction and recovery projects, and other forms of financial assistance, but not military or humanitarian assistance, or financial contributions that have military purposes.

For countries which are Member States of the European Union, they should have provided or committed to provide bilateral economic assistance of at least 0.05% of the country’s 2022 GDP or at least USD 200 million to Ukraine in addition to their contributions to the EU budget.

In order to ensure Ukraine’s economic recovery continues on its pro-market, democratic reform trajectory, Platform observers must be established democracies with market economies.

The participation as observer would be for one year, renewable if the level of support remains equal or greater than the previous year.

Annual observers of the MDCP could observe all Steering Committee meetings from an online observer room, their experts could observe all online expert meetings, and the observers would receive all Steering Committee materials and read-outs.

Annual observers would be able to participate in an annual expanded session of the Steering Committee on the margins of the Ukraine Recovery Conference.

How to apply?

Countries that wish to apply for member or observer status, following the membership expansion criteria outlined in the above, are invited to share with the Platform’s Secretariat a summary of the country’s contributions to Ukraine’s economic development. The Secretariat will provide a template to use for this purpose.
