CBA-I Achievements in EU Cooperation News

Results of the EU/ UNDP Community Based Approach to Local Development Project were published in EU Cooperation News.

‘The CBA Project is not a philanthropic programme; it is a politically oriented Project, where ‘policy’ is the art of governance. It is aimed at the development of democracy at local level,’ - noted Jose Leon Lora, Head of Sector – Head of Operations Sub-Sector, Delegation of European Union in Ukraine.

‘The second phase of the Project (2011-2014) is oriented at energy saving,’ - emphasized Mr. Leon Lora. – ‘If previously we focused our attention on the social sphere, now we are going to actively introduce energy saving technologies, thus, 40-50% of projects are going to favor energy saving in rural territories. Currently, the problem of energy saving is global for Ukraine, and we want to contribute to its solution. Energy saving does not always require considerable investments; often it is a question of reasonably planned and economical consumption of energy.’
