The Peer-to-Peer initiative, launched in February 2018 with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme, helps Ukrainian hromadas and regions to share experience and best practices with municipalities and regions in the EU member states.
Out of three AHs, involved in the initiative, there two from the Zaporizhzia Oblast – namely the Veselivska and Shyrokivska AHs. Within 6 months, their representatives traveled to partner communities: the Shyrokivska AH had a trip to Barleben (Germany), and the Veselivska AH – to Rakvere (Estonia).
Each AH chose a topic for cooperation and already has its achievements.
The Veselivska AH is working on creating a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) within the framework of the Mayors’ Agreement. The visit of the Vesele gymnasium director to Estonia gave an insight into how the energy-sanitation of the building should be implemented, the funds for which (UAH 9 million) were received by the AH from the State Fund for Regional Development.
The Shyrokivska AH decided to cooperate and share experience in the field of investment activity stimulation and development of modern production infrastructure for the economic development of territories, with the goal of creating the basic principles for the development of small and medium-sized business.
One of the results of the initiative was the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Shyroke and Barleben hromadas.
