The “Promotion of Human Security in Ukraine through Responding to the Multidimensional Crisis Caused by the War” Project, which is funded by the Government of Japan and implemented by UNDP Ukraine, aims at enhancing human security in Ukraine by responding to the multidimensional crisis caused by the war and addressing high vulnerability due to the ongoing war in the country.

Lot 2: The projects submitted within this Lot should contribute to improving media literacy and countering disinformation in Ukraine through conducting baseline studies, evaluating existing initiatives, monitoring disinformation, exploring innovative approaches to countering disinformation, and building research capacity.

Lot 3: The projects submitted to this Lot should contribute to the advancement and promotion of digital accessibility and awareness of these issues.
