Decentralization is the process of transfer of power and resources from the state to the local self-government, so that governance solutions are closer to people and are more easily influenced by them. The reform of decentralization in Ukraine was launched in 2014, and is commonly known now as the reform of local self-government.

To ensure the reform of administrative and territorial system, local self-governance and regional policy, a number of strategic documents were developed with DESPRO’s support. Under changing political environment between 2008 and 2019, the project managed to leave a footprint in Ukrainian legislation.
