ARCHES response teams take care to ensure their work is supported by data, led by local residents of the communities they serve, and respects Ukraine's unique culture, history, and environmental needs.
ARCHES is designed to rapidly scale throughout Ukraine as the country begins to rebuild, but the Mykolaiv region will serve as the program’s first area of focus.
Mykolaiv, located in southern Ukraine, sustained heavy damage throughout the war due to intense shelling, ground force attacks, and indirect fallout from the Nova Kakhovka dam collapse.
International and local teams are recruited based on the settlements to be assisted.
International teams are briefed on target communities, as well as Ukraine-specific considerations. Local teams are prepared for training.
Work is carried out, analyzing each environment and determining—together with the local community—the best way forward for each urban planning and design challenge.
The charrettes are converted into online training that can be accessed by any Ukrainian. International teams check in with local teams to ensure recommendations are being carried out.
Neo-Eco Ukraine is the local partner for French multinational circular economy company Neo-Eco. Originally focused on bringing revolutionary processes that transform waste and building debris into materials for re-use, Neo-Eco has since expanded to support wider reconstruction efforts that include AI-powered damage analysis for entire oblasts, macroeconomic analysis, and the ARCHES program.
