This report presents the results of a final internal evaluation of the project “Integration and Stabilization Support through Livelihoods for IDPs and the Conflict-Affected Population in Ukraine,” implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) with funding from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) from December 2016 to March 2018. The project was originally planned to end in November 2017, but a no-cost extension was granted during the evaluation planning. The project was designed to mitigate negative impacts of the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine on the well-being of conflict-affected populations by providing livelihoods support to IDPs and host community members through grants for self-employment, micro-enterprise (business development), or vocational courses. These opportunities for economic empowerment aimed to help direct beneficiaries meet their basic needs, support achievement of business and wider community development goals, and contribute to the integration of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and the stabilization of host communities.
