How is life: micro-narratives on the impact of the Ukraine crisis in the Republic of Moldova
30 September 2022
UNDP is leading the socio-economic response to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine closely coordinating with the humanitarian response and partners such as UNHCR. Moldova is hosting the highest numbers of Ukrainian refugees per capita, which has a dramatic impact on Moldova’s budget. UNDP Moldova partnered with The Cynefin Company to explore the experiences of both Ukrainians refugees in Moldova, and the local Moldovan citizens. SenseMaker®, a mixed methods ethnographic research tool, was used to collect micro-narratives about living in the community. This research paper explores the quantitative and qualitative insights gained from the SenseMaker® data, complemented at the end by data from a multi-needs assessment survey.
