From June 2017 until its end in July this year, the project “Improving Municipal Governance”, also known as “Go Local”, was supporting the municipalities in strengthening all aspects of local governance and promotion trough the process of decentralization. Through the project grant scheme, 40 projects were implemented to improve the quality of the life on local level – from renovation of schools and installation of pedestrian paths, to procurement of equipment for waste collection and equipping the first regional care station for pariah dogs. Due to the restricton for organizing gatherings, which was introduced to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, this closeout event is held in the form of a video premiere with pre-recorded materials but with an open opportunity for your comments and questions.
