IRI Project Management Training in Ukraine

Access to a 2023 news article about project management training for reconstruction in Ukraine added to PM World Library

10 February 2024 – Dallas, TX, USA and Kyiv, Ukraine – A new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to rebuilding Ukraine.  The new resource is titled “IRI Project Management Training in Ukraine” and is a news article about project management training sponsored by the International Republican Institute (IRI) in May 2023.

According to the article: Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has caused incredible destruction to communities throughout Ukraine. More than 150,000 residential buildings worth $54 billion USD, have been damaged or destroyed over the last 14 months, according to the Kyiv School of Economics. Reconstruction involves implementing a great number of projects in communities that require diverse planning skills and high-quality management. That is why the International Republican Institute (IRI) launched a project management training series for local government officials with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Over the course of three months, 30 local officials representing different areas of Ukraine – from Kherson to Lviv – were trained at IRI’s “Project Management School for Local Government Officials.” Participants learned how to identify community priorities for reconstruction, develop budgets during crisis, and compile project implementation teams.

The program concluded with a conference in Kyiv, where participants presented their projects and received recommendations on funding opportunities from domestic and international donors. The projects developed included a mine clearance program in Bakhmut and the construction of a refuse sorting station in Chornobayivka.
