Competition that is agemate of decentralisation. Over 170 best local self-government practices presented to Ukraine

A treasury of best practices of local self-government has been enriched by 30 more projects.

Awarding ceremony of winners of the All-Ukrainian competition “Best Local Self-Government Practices” took place in Kyiv. The Ministry of Development of Communities and Territories, in cooperation with the Council of Europe Programme “Decentralisation and Local Government Reform in Ukraine”, conducts this competition for the sixth time. This year, the selection committee selected 30 winners out of 136 local self-government practices. They were awarded by Vyacheslav Nehoda, Deputy Minister of Development of Communities and Territories.

He recalled that the competition was initiated in 2014 with the launch of the reform of local self-government and territorial organisation of power in the country, the task of which is to create conditions for the development of hromadas that are comfortable for life and self-realisation of their residents. And the idea of the competition is to spread the best practices implemented in hromadas all around Ukraine.

Vyacheslav Nehoda noted the high participation activity of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, with as many as 5 finalists.

“For the first time the local self-government practices of the Zakarpattia Oblast are among the finals. We welcome the progress made by the region, which in recent months has had a lot to do to ensure that hromadas of the region receive the same conditions for development as every oblast currently has,” said the Deputy Minister.

The competition was carried out in three topics. The first is practices based on decisions of local councils regarding socio-economic development. The second and most popular is the development based upon hromada’s peculiarities. The third is involving young people in local economic development.

Vyacheslav Nehoda thanked the Council of Europe Programme “Decentralisation and Local Government Reform in Ukraine” for cooperation within the competition and expressed hope that the decision on its further holding would be prolonged.
