Intermunicipal cooperation as a strategic priority
As of the early October, 2021, the register of agreements on municipality cooperation, available at the MinRegion site, enlists 744 agreements. As the list includes all the agreements, concluded since 2014 when the Law of Ukraine On Municipality Cooperation, the number of «live» agreements is less– part of the municipalities, having concluded such cooperation agreements with each other, currently are part of new municipalities, and part of the agreements have already expired. That is why even if we take into account at least two parties’ availability in each agreement, we won’t get at least one agreement for each of 1469 municipalities, established in 2020. The current year considered, on average a little more than ten agreements are concluded per month, so, the situation doesn’t change radically.
According to Myroslav Koshelyuk, an expert of strategic planning and strategic communication, the data testify to the incumbent procedure for concluding agreements on intermunicipal cooperation being complicated, local self-government experts’ low awareness of using such an opportunity, municipality leaders’ reluctance to cooperate with neighbours and other municipalities, the lack of common interests.
