Welcome to the U-LEARN School of Decentralisation!

One of the key results of the decentralisation and regional policy reforms is the reorganisation of public administration and service delivery, both at the sub-national level. Local self-government is now required to take on new responsibilities and tasks.

This places new demands on human resources and capacity development of both employed and elected officials in local public administration. As key actors in community development, civil society organisations also need to adopt new knowledge. Training, expert consultations, peer-learning and exchanges play a crucial role in this situation.

As the number of amalgamated hromadas increases, digital technologies and learning tools are becoming more important to reach out to communities all around Ukraine. U-LEAD with Europe has started developing eLearning modules as part of its capacity development for amalgamated hromadas.

The modules are free to access. No registration is required. You only need to register if you would like a certificate confirming you successfully completed a module. The modules offer an option to take a final quiz, with a pass required for receiving a certificate.

We wish you happy learning – and stay tuned for new modules coming soon.

U-LEAD with Europe

Decentralisation and regional development are key political tasks for Ukraine. These reforms will contribute to creating capable local self-government that can bring positive changes in people’s lives. The Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories (MinRegion) is responsible for this milestone reform process.

U-LEAD with Europe: Ukraine – Local Empowerment, Accountability and Development Programme is a multi-donor action of the European Union and its Member States - Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Poland and Sweden. U-LEAD with Europe supports the Government of Ukraine in establishing multi-level governance that is transparent, accountable and responsive to the needs of the population.

The programme has two main objectives:

1). To enhance the capacities of key stakeholders at the national, regional and local levels to implement the regional policy and decentralisation reforms (GIZ).

2). To empower amalgamated hromadas in providing high-quality administrative services to citizens, which contributes to the decentralisation reform in Ukraine (Sida).
