UN will spend a quarter of a million dollars on a budget management project in Transcarpathia
On Thursday, August 23, the head of the regional administration Olexander Ledyda met with UN Resident Coordinator, Resident Representative of UNDP in Ukraine Olivier Adam.
The "Local Development CBA" project in Transcarpathia became so successful that today negotiations are conducted about implementing its third phase. Resident Representative of UNDP in Ukraine Olivier Adam said:
- Transcarpathia occupies a special place in the implementation of EU projects. Your region strikes with an interesting history, customs, natural beauty and unique geographical location. Therefore, I plan to devote my time not only to visiting communities that receive project funds, but also to exploring the area.
Olivier Adam also shared future plans. In particular, he said that European partners are willing to spend a quarter of a million dollars for the budget management project in the Transcarpathian region. Currently, they are waiting for the approval of the documents by the Ministry of Finance.
Note: EU / UNDP Project "Local Development CBA II" was launched in Transcarpathia on July 12, 2011 with the signing of a joint Memorandum of Understanding between the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, Transcarpathian Regional Council and UNDP.
