Under the chairmanship of the acting chairman of the Odessa regional state administration, Svetlana Shatalova, a meeting was held to summarize the implementation of the joint project of the Austrian Development Agency and the United Nations Development Program "Sustainable development of rural areas of Chernivtsi and Odesa regions".

The event was attended by the head of the Odessa regional department of the implementation of the project of the Austrian Development Agency and the United Nations Development Program Tetyana Mayak, heads of rayon state administrations and communities on whose territory these projects were implemented. Recall that on the territory of the Odessa region this project has been successfully implemented in two phases, beginning in 2017: 10 communities of 7 rayons of the oblast took part in the first phase, in the second - 7 communities of 4 rayons of the region.

"Within the framework of the project, energy-efficient and energy-saving measures were implemented in 13 educational institutions and preschool educational institutions (7 schools and 6 kindergartens), two rural clinics. Another important achievement of the Project is to support the region's economic development by supporting two cooperatives and eight small non-profit business initiatives. The implementation of such joint projects is extremely important for the Odessa region, as it promotes not only the welfare and living standards of the rural population, but also the formation of self-awareness, the self-sufficiency of local communities, and the activation of people to join forces with local authorities, "said Svetlana Shatalova.
