Planning Assumptions

While the future direction and dynamics of the war remain uncertain, planning assumptions are possible given the trends that have become apparent since 2022. Moreover, the reality of the scale of impact from the Russian invasion on Ukraine, and the effect this has had on the Republic of Moldova and other hosting countries allows IOM to plan for activities that will remain, regardless of major changes in the conflict scenarios. IOM and its partners can only cover a limited, targeted percentage of the needs and these limitations will remain even in the best-case scenario where returns increase, and recovery is robust. Needs and rights-based targeting and delivery of assistance and services, with protection being at its core, will remain a cornerstone of IOM programming. Read more on planning assumptions
