Rayons of the Cherkasy Region have successfully implemented the CBA methodology

On 25 May, deputies of the Shpolyans’ka rayon council almost unanimously adopted the program “Support and Development of Local Communities and Local Initiatives of Local Communities of the Shpolyans’ka District in the year 2011-2012.” This district oriented program encourages the implementation of activities of the rayon through competitive mechanisms for the co-financing of community initiatives in the Shpolyans’ka rayon. Employees of the district’s community resource center developed the program and nominated deputies for the district council. Head of the District council, Sergei Hrebenichenko, explained that after studying the experiences of the realization of the project “Community Based Approach on Local Development,” Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky, Sarnensky rayons and our Cherkasy collegues from Zvenyhorod encouraged us to take this decision. Furthermore their own participation in the project demonstrated the effectiveness of the CBA methodology for rural development.
