“We worked with each of you. We have been reaching this day for almost a year,” began Natalia Slynko, Head of the Local Systemic Development Programme, Programme Director of the Eastern Europe Foundation, speaking during public discussion on the topic: “Transparent management of land and other hromada resources: authorities-hromada-business” in the Kolomatska AH of the Kharkiv Oblast. “We tried to show how much resources the hromada possesses, not only land ones, and how many opportunities, it has respectively. We have helped the Kolomatska AH not only to create an electronic map, we have tried to build a dialogue between the authorities, the hromada and local business. And I sincerely thank all the AH residents for remaining concerned about this dialogue. I am very pleased to note that hromada residents have united around resolving issues related to determining their future ...”


During the discussion


Although this event was called public discussion, in fact, it has virtually no dicussions, as hromada residents have long discussed everything during working group meetings. The meeting in Kolomak was rather a milestone that the hromada raised when it implemented a large-scale project with the Local Systemic Development Programme in the frames of USAID Agriculture and Rural Development Support Project. For 10 months, representatives of the Kolomatska AH and experts of the Local Systemic Development Programme had been developing comprehensive land management documentation. The results of the joint work in the form of maps and measures for future use of the territory were subsequently made available to the public via the links:

In total, 79 hromadas from the Luhansk, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts participate in the Local Systemic Development Programme. The programme aims to assist hromadas in the effective management of land and other resources within AH based on GIS technologies; development of AH capacity to attract investment; due account of the interests of local self-government, business and the third sector.
