This report covers the finding of the post-execution monitoring of 433 houses repaired by UNHCR in the frame of the 2019 shelter programme in the east of Ukraine.
The monitoring visits took place between October 2019 and April 2020, and were performed by teams composed of at least two members, one from the shelter team and one from the protection unit. The form has two main sections, one focusing on technical aspects, the other on protection.
A few changes to the questionnaire were introduced in 2019, mainly to capture the feedback on cash based interventions; all changes, though, comply with the principle of preserving the comparability of data and findings across the implementation years. The monitored sample covers repairs completed in the geographic areas of four of the five UNHCR offices in eastern Ukraine: Mariupol, Sloviansk and Sievierodonetsk in governmentcontrolled areas (GCA); and Donetsk in non government-controlled areas (NGCA). Last year, Luhansk office in NGCA was not allowed to implement field visits and therefore could not contribute to the 20192 monitoring exercise.
The 433 monitoring visits on which this report is based represent 33 per cent of the 1,316 repairs conducted in 2019 by UNHCR, in line with last year’s already satisfactory achievement.

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)
