TRENDS AND KEY FIGURES
2017 Achievements are reported based on 4 cluster objectives, 3 of them being operational and the fourth one related to the coordination itself. Each operational cluster objective is covering a particular aspect of the response: the first one includes core life saving and immediate activities, the second one is related to transitional solutions and providing adequate shelter in the absence of durable solutions, and the third one aims to stabilize on a longer term perspective the humanitarian situation with pilot reconstruction and repairs to community infrastructure.
On December 29th, 2017, the President of Ukraine signed the Law of Ukraine On 2018 State Budget of Ukraine.
A cursory analysis of the draft Law of Ukraine No 7000 On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2018 (the draft version as of November 30, 2017) suggests that next year, the situation with financing of governmental programs on supporting internally displaced persons and the areas affected by armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine won’t drastically change. On the contrary, slight decline in financing of certain public bodies dealing with these problems and certain budget programs can be observed in some cases. This decrease can be unnoticed in UAH.
The total number of officially registered IDPs has decreased substantially in November (by over 109,000 people).
Even IDP pensioners permanently registered in the Government Controlled Areas (GCA) cannot receive pensions without IDP registration: Most departments of the Pension Fund of Ukraine (PFU) refuse to provide pensions to these IDPs without IDP registration.
Therefore, these IDPs continue renewing their IDP registration solely to receive their pensions.
Housing, land and property issues are key protection concerns for conflict-affected people in Ukraine.1 For people living close to the contact line separating governmentcontrolled areas (GCA) and non-government controlled areas (NGCA) of Ukraine, expropriation and occupation of residential houses, commercial property and private agricultural land by military actors has been reported.
Military occupation of housing, including looting and damage, has been reported both in GCA and NGCA.

TRENDS AND KEY FIGURES
Between 1 January 2017 and 30 November 2017, 171,300 refugees and migrants arrived by sea and land to Europe (Greece, Italy, Spain and Cyprus only, including arrivals to the Canary Islands and by land to Spain). While sea arrivals to Europe in November were 51% lower than last year, largely due to fewer people crossing from Libya, higher numbers crossed from Libya in November than in October while Spain recorded the highest number of land and sea arrivals this year.
Protracted conflict erodes the coping mechanisms of those living in conflict-affected areas of Eastern Ukraine
