Author: Olena Sas, decentralisation expert, coordinator of OSCE projects in Ukraine, for Mindlab.media

Five years ago, on 1 April 2014, the Government approved the Concept of the Decentralisation Reform.

These changes come along with the digital era – people use open data in their daily work and implement electronic services in the administrative service centres of their hromadas.
