Rule of law begins with... toilets: experience of Dolyna

We got used to think that the rule of law is a matter of high-ranking academics and legislators. However, there are more customary issues that reveal these vital principles of hromada life and governance.

Back in 2010, the UN adopted a resolution that attaches the human right to water and sanitation.

An important step in this direction was made by the local authorities of the town of Dolyna, located in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast. During the exchange of experience with their colleagues, hromada members learned about the revealed, seemingly simple, but significant problem: passengers and drivers were not able to use the toilet at the final stops of public transport.

Representatives of the town executive committee came to a conclusion that it is important not only to ensure the right of a citizen to travel, but also his/her right to a comfortable expectation of the trip. This became a prerequisite for implementation of the right of Dolyna citizens to accessibility. Thus, toilets have finally appeared at public transport stops in the town of Dolyna.

Local authorities also plan to introduce amenities for people with disabilities in public places.
