Vidbudova Ukrayiny bez koruptsiyi


Around the globe, countries are making big investments in infrastructure, whether to rebuild after disasters, boost economies, or improve climate resilience. Using scarce resources efficiently and effectively is crucial, but we know construction is hard for citizens and public officials to monitor. Because of the scale of effort required for post-war recovery, Ukraine will have to lead the way in developing new and better systems for high performance.
