PLEDDG Project implementation commenced in Myrgorod in the framework of “Partnership for Local Economic Development and Democratic Governance” Program (PLEDDG). Myrgorod was selected in the result of competition among other Ukrainian cities. This project encourages participation from territorial communities that have different level of success and implement different initiatives in the sphere of local economic development.

On December 8-10, 2015 the representatives of our city, in particular: Ms. Natalia Gyrka, City Council Secretary, and Mr. Oksana Golub, Head of Economic Forecasting Department, participated in the first training session on local economic development for local governments representatives in Poltava and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts, which was conducted in Kyiv, Puscha-Vodytsa.

The key aspects of the first training were: support to the local self-governance bodies in creation of “open government” model, introduction of the transparent and collective decision making process allowing the stakeholders (civil society organizations, mass media, private sector representatives and citizens) more actively participate in development and implementation of the strategies and programs for local development, elaboration of local decisions aimed at territorial communities development.

The priority tasks in city’s cooperation with the PLEDDG Project are advisory, hands-on and material support in development of the Strategy for Myrgorod.

Signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the PLEDDG Project and Myrgorod City Council is planned for December 23, 2015. The aim of the Memorandum is to establish cooperation and set specific directions of activities.
