LDA in Dnipropetrovsk – A step forward

In an effort to support the development of local communities, local democracy and citizens’ participation in Ukraine, ALDA - The European Association of Local Democracy, in cooperation with local and regional authorities and civil society organisations, is working to establish a Local Democracy Agency in Dnipropetrovsk (LDA)/ Ukraine.


Together with our partners we are planning to launch the LDA in Dnipropetrovsk on 18th May 2015 in line with the Europe Day celebrations. Our current confirmed partners include the regions of Lower Silesia (Poland), Alsace (France), and the region of Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine). The LDA is endorsed by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, by the UNDP ART initiative and CORLEAP (The Conference of the Regional and Local Authorities for the Eastern Partnership) of the Committee of the Regions (CoR).

ALDA is currently looking for more partners from the EU regions/municipalities, as well as European and local civil society actors to come on board.

An introductory event, was held on 6th March in Dnipropetrovsk, to present the LDA and its objectives to the EU and Ukrainian stakeholders interested in supporting this important initiative. The event was organised back-to-back with the Youth event held by the Congress of the Council of Europe within the framework of the Congress project “Strengthening the capacity of local authorities in Ukraine”.

ALDA and its partners invited a number of EU-based and Ukrainian civil society groups, Regions and Municipalities with a work focus on Ukraine, to participate in the event on the 6th of March.
