New publications | Decentralisation and local public administration reform in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine

13 April 2021

NALAS just published four new publications on decentralisation and local public administration reform in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. These studies aim to consolidate lessons learned over three decades of reform and help the local government associations prepare for the reform next steps in their countries.

The publications highlight the main achievements, challenges and opportunities for future reforms in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. They aim to support and inform the advocacy efforts of the Congress of Local Authorities from Moldova (CALM), the National Association of Local Authorities of Georgia (NALAG) and the Association of Ukrainian Cities (AUC), vis-à-vis their national and EU level stakeholders.

They also intent to strengthen the position of CALM, NALAG and AUC for intergovernmental dialogue at the national and EU level. Finally, these publications support an open intergovernmental dialogue and help build consensus on decentralisation and local government reform in EaP countries and facilitate learning and promote exchange of experiences and lessons learned on decentralisation and local public administration reform.

These studies are developed by NALAS, with the support of PLATFORMA and the technical assistance and expertise from KDZ – Centre for Public Administration Research. The Status Report builds on the specific country reports prepared in partnership with NALAG, CALM and AUC.
