Decentralisation reform in Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast: conclusions and plans

The Ivano-Frankivsk Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion of Ukraine, summed up its work over 2017.

“Not a single AH in Prykarpattya was outside the attention of the Centre. We primarily worked on support of the process of new hromadas’ amalgamation through 100 meetings held in the villages, rural settlements and rayon centres, as well as participation in public hearings. The amalgamation process covered about 6000 residents. As a result, we have 11 newly formed AHs. It should be mentioned that the process of hromada establishment is complex and involves negotiations, smoothing out sharp edges, and often controversy regarding the right to be the centre of the hromada. The plan and expectations are one thing, and the reality and final result – a completely different issue. Our criterion was not the the quantity of AHs, but their quality. Besides, the use of the Perspective plan of the oblast was always the basis for amalgamation,” said Ruslan Panasyuk, director of the Ivano-Frankivsk LGDC, at the press conference.

In the nearest future, the project “Before and After the Reform” is planned to be launched to tell about the changes in the daily life of the hromada residents on certain examples of hromadas of Prykarpattya.
