This report covers the finding of the post-execution monitoring of 464 houses repaired by UNHCR in the frame of the 2018 shelter programme in the east of Ukraine.
The monitoring visits took place between September 2018 and March 2019, and were performed by teams composed of at least two members, one from the shelter team and one from the protection unit.
The monitored sample covers repairs completed in the geographic areas of all five UNHCR offices in eastern Ukraine (Mariupol, Sloviansk and Sievierodonetsk in government-controlled areas [GCA]; Donetsk and Luhansk in non-government-controlled areas [NGCA]).
The 464 monitoring visits on which this report is based represent 34% of the 1,374 repairs conducted in 2018 by UNHCR: a significant improvement compared to the 13% covered in the 2017 shelter monitoring exercise (232 visits out of 1,732 repairs conducted).
The monitoring of 2018 shelter activities confirms the main findings of the 2017 campaign: the repair of houses damaged by conflict-related incidents is still highly appreciated by recipients (95% of respondents, compared to 97% in 2017) and is executed with good quality (99% of cases, compared to 100% in 2017).

Producers and sponsors
Non random sample (purposive), selected to comply with 3 principles:
§ to cover as many areas as possible in order to capture the different conditions in which house repairs are conducted, while giving priority to areas with difficult access and conditions
§ to accord priority to problematic cases (in terms of technical or protection-related issues)
§ to cover all types of repairs, but giving priority to interventions that have required high investments in terms of time and money (heavy repairs and reconstructions)
