Community-Led Emergency Action and Response: CLEAR Program 

CLEAR is an 18-month, $15 million program implemented by Global Communities and funded by the United States Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID/BHA). CLEAR is addressing the urgent protection, shelter & settlements (S&S), and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs for 22,580 people who have been affected by the war in Ukraine. A core strategy of the program is implementation in coordination with local organizations, leveraging our existing networks through the DOBRE program, and working with other civil society organizations (CSOs) in Chernihiv and Chernivtsi oblasts. CLEAR has integrated reflection and learning to capture lessons from this approach to be shared with donors and the broader humanitarian community.
