Market Systems Approach for Decent Work in Ukraine - Sector Selection Report. Prioritising the pathway for vulnerable workers in economic reconstruction

This report serves as a sector selection study for the Market System Approach for Decent Work in Ukraine project. The project is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) within its inclusive economic development thematic area in Ukraine. It is an action-oriented research project with the objective of providing the analytical foundation for the targeted design of a larger implementation phase intended to support economic recovery in Ukraine and create more productive and decent jobs for the vulnerable during the country’s reconstruction.

This report assesses potential in seven economic sectors in Ukraine to support the project to narrow its implementation focus into high potential sectors. These sectors were assessed through the review of secondary data and primary research and against three key criteria: relevance, opportunity and feasibility. Based on this analysis, the project prioritised three sectors for implementation - construction, preschool education and childcare, and e-commerce.
