13-15 August 2014 cluster training was held in Sumy for coordinators of CBA Project and for representatives of oblasts and rayons of 9 eastern and central regions of Ukraine (Chernihivska, Kyivska, Poltavska, Kharkivska, Cherkaska, Kirovohradska, Dnipropetrovska, Zaporizka and Donetska). Participants of the training studied experience of SAT4SLD piloting (self-assessment tool for sustainable local development) in Luhansk and Sumy oblasts.

From June to July 2013 Gluhivsky rayon of Sumy oblast and Antratsytivsky rayon of Luhansk oblast were testing new tool for sustainable local development SAT4SLD, which was worked out by Bratyslava UNDP regional office. This tool helped piloting rayons independently assess current status of social, economic and ecological spheres of their territories and come to a consensus regarding further sustainable development and along with this work out a strategy of territorial development. Also this self-assessment and strategy development are built on local initiative with bottom-up planning and are based on surveys and communities’ assessment.

Considering that this methodology proved to be successful in piloting rayons and communities, joint EU/UNDP Project “Community Based Approach - II” decided to disseminate experience of Luhansk and Sumy oblasts among other oblasts of Ukraine.

Based on the results of the training, now oblasts have to decide how to use the tool and to conduct self-assessment of local development at their own communities with further development of strategy for their rayons and communities.
