Register now!

Mark your calendars! The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)'s Governance Network, in partnership with DESPRO, is delighted to announce a new webinar which is open for all to attend.

The reform of Local Self-Government in Ukraine received the support of the SDC-funded DESPRO project from 2007 onwards; after the Revolution of Dignity in 2013, a revived political will fast-tracked the implementation of the reform with impressive results. Broad communication support to the reform, supported by DESPRO, was instrumental in opening up public dialogue about decentralisation, and adopting a new administrative-territorial system in the country.

In this webinar we will learn about the experience of Ukraine with a focus on communications and donor coordination, and the lessons learnt for other decentralisation support programmes.
