Municipal partnerships with Ukraine

Municipal partnership is a great tool for experience exchange, capacity building and bringing innovation to local level. Developing partnerships with Ukrainian municipalities is also a contribution to rebuilding Ukraine after the Russian unprovoked war and bringing forward its European integration. 

Ukrainian municipalities and local authorities showed enormous bravery and resilience. Their rapid decision making and crisis management skills and ability to arrange territorial and civil defense in times of war is what fascinates and earns respect of many.
