The project “Supervising and monitoring Ukraine’s reconstruction funds” (SMURF) is an initiative led by CFCS in partnership with BRDO in Ukraine. The SMURF project aims to expand the capabilities of the “second line of defense” of Ukraine, civil society, to gather expert knowledge and tools that will enable it to monitor the proper distribution of funds and prevent kleptocracy and corruption. The project started in November 2022 with the support of NED.
Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) is an independent think tank, a key platform for united reforms organisations which share values to implement changes. BRDO’s experts participate in the development of public policies to transform Ukraine into a European democracy with good governance and a strong economy.
