Creation of the Regional Development Agency. Project proposal

The project proposal is a synthesis of lengthy consultations and discussions between European and Ukrainian experts, representatives of the European Commission, Ukrainian cities and local development institutions. The negotiators clearly expressed the need for the creation of Regional Development Agencies as a tool for joint action to address the issues of local economic and territorial development.

The proposal contains the results of the analytical and planning work of the group of experts, which, summarizing the experience gained in the EU and Ukraine, offer solutions to the key issues of the creation of the Regional Development Agency aimed at strengthening the capacity of the communities, as well as improving the quality and speed of the processes of local economic and territorial development. The proposed solutions are most optimal for Ukrainian realities, consistent with the practices of the European Union, international financial organizations, as well as current Ukrainian legislation.
