Description of Project

The Municipal Partnership Programme of Central and Eastern Europe enables Swedish municipalities and County Councils to engage in co-operations with counterparts in Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldavia and Turkey. The purpose of the programme is to increase local governance and local democracy. The partnerships are result-oriented and should have objectives which both partners profit from attaining. The partnerships could deal with such problems as:

  • solid waste management
  • urban planning
  • democracy and local administration
  • gender equality
  • environmental issues

From 2009 new applications are handled by International Center for Local Democracy – ICLD. http://www.icld.se
