Until now the Ternopil Oblast has been one of the few oblasts that had not yet begun the process of intermunicipal cooperation.
Last year, the Ternopil Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion, launched systematic work on the implementation of hromadas’ intermunicipal cooperation in the Ternopil Oblast. The preparation included, first of all, a complex of training seminars and workshops, development of local standards, preparation of analytical recommendations to the Ternopil OSA and Council. The Centre elaborated the Programme for Support of Hromadas’ Cooperation in the Ternopil Oblast for 2017-2019. At the same time, the work on the implementation of cooperation of hromadas did not stop. And now the Ternopil Oblast finally got its first result. After a series of discussions, with the assistance of the Ternopil LGDC, the first cooperation agreement in the oblast was concluded between the Borsukivka and Snihurivka village councils.
According to Viktor Lytvynchuk, director of the Ternopil LGDC, the oblast has a strong potential for the development of hromadas’ cooperation. Intermunicipal cooperation is an extremely effective tool for ensuring the capacity of hromadas. By joint efforts, local self-government bodies will be able to solve socio-economic problems more quickly and persistently.
