Recently a conference “Perspectives for Eastern Ukraine” was held in Kyiv with the participation of international and national GIZ partners. During this conference participants discussed joint achievements and also how to ensure sustainable development in Eastern Ukraine in the future.

We have already achieved great results together with our partners in more than 100 communities in Eastern Ukraine: renovation of schools and kindergartens, improvement of administrative services, creation of youth centres and supplying modern equipment to the emergency services.

Our partners shared their vision of the future support for Eastern Ukraine and highlighted the most significant achievements over the past years.
