The 1-day workshop of the project „Good Governance in Local Communities: V4 Experience of Strategic Planning for EaP Countries” was conducted for participants from Republic of Moldova in Soroca on July 29, 2017. The project is implemented by NGO “Euroregion “Dniester” with the support of the International Visegrad Fund and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
16 representatives of 8 territorial communities from Republic of Moldova took part in the workshop. On July 27 and 28, 2017 such event was conducted in Vinnytsia for 40 participants from Ukraine representing 20 Ukrainian communities.
Terms of participation remained unchanged: each community representative was given 45 minutes to present their exploratory work of community development strategy.
In May 2017 participants completed training courses on strategic planning and governing of territorial communities. Then 2 months (from June to July) were given to accomplish the project tasks, namely to elaborate both diagnostics of situations and SWOT-analysis to find strengths and weaknesses of their territorial communities. Such constituents would make the first stage for elaborating community development strategies.
It was within the framework of the workshops that the participants presented the results of the task. The project experts Olha Bezpalko (UA), Andrii Kavunets (UA), Nicolai Moscalu (PL) and Radoslav Shelageya (MD) would assess the outcomes of exploratory works. The experts would choose 4 leading communities with the help of rating voting, so that 8 their representatives would continue participating in the next project stages.
The main selection criteria are the level of acquired knowledge and the quality of prepared situation diagnoses and SWOT-analysis of strengths and weaknesses.
The selection results will be announced a little later.
14 winning communities (10 from Ukraine and 4 from Republic of Moldova respectively) will go to V4 countries with a Study visit. Also they will be provided with consulting support, and the project experts will support them in further development and completion of community development strategies within the framework of the project.
We remind that the main intellectual output of the project will be The Guidance for community development strategy and integrated development strategies for 14 pilot communities.
