ALDA is very proud to announce the beginning of a new adventure in north-eastern Europe, under the banner of participative democracy, local development, and sustainability.

These values ​​will be supported and fostered all along the implementation of the project ” Donner aux autorités locales et à la société civile les moyens de fournir des solutions grâce à la démocratie participative “, addressing the countries of Ukraine and Moldova, thanks to the support of the  Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS ) program . For its successful implementation ALDA is working together with the Local Democracy Agencies of the targeted areas: LDA MariupolLDA Region of Dnipropetrovsk  et LDA Moldova of Cimislia.

The project officially kicked-off on April 15th, with a series of meetings in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol. There, Antonella Valmorbida, ALDA Secretary-General and Tetiana Lomakina, delegate of the LDA Mariupol, met with the Mayor of Mariupol and were directly involved in assessment-visits with different local authorities and CSOs, aiming at identifying the real needs of the communities.
During this first phase, project partners are going to gather information to fulfill the assessment on good local governance though the  12 Principles of the Good Governance , a methodology elaborated by the Council of Europe.

Local authorities and civil society will then be trained and empowered in order to be able to address local problems through participative approaches and identifying more sustainable, fair and inclusive solutions. The project will therefore promote local development and contribute to the achievement of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the local level.

Altogether, these actions will create long-lasting links between communities and cities in Ukraine and Moldova, paving the way for the achievement of a decentralized cooperation.
