The delegation of the Donetsk Oblast, consisting of officials of the structural units of the Oblast State Administration and representatives of the amalgamated hromadas, travelled to Poltava region to learn intermunicipal cooperation between hromadas. The Poltava Oblast became the leader in this indicator – 47 out of 111 agreements on intermunicipal cooperation, signed in 18 regions of Ukraine, operate in the Poltava Oblast. The training tour was organised by the Donetsk Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion.
In Poltava, the representatives of the Donetsk Oblast got acquainted with the peculiarities of application of the intermunicipal cooperation methods, that gave a powerful impetus to the formation of amalgamated hromadas.
During the training seminar conducted by the Poltava LGDC experts, the delegation of the Donetsk Oblast learned that the state in the form of subventions and grants supports primarily those projects that require involvement of at least 4 hromadas for their implementation. Such contracts begin on 1 January of the next year after signing, and as far as the legislation does not allow additional joining of the intermunicipal cooperation participants, the procedure has to be repassed. International donors are ready to support projects of intermunicipal cooperation, allocating funds for the purchase of technical appliances or equipment. A new form of relationship between hromadas has shown its effectiveness in the field of waste disposal and recycling, landscaping of territories, joint maintenance of cultural or healthcare institutions.
