Most active 40 communities in Moldova will be visited in the next two months to see live how the best practices are implemented. The communities were selected on 19 July, by members of the Steering Group of the Best Practice Programme for Local Authorities in Moldova in a meeting.

Among the active communities we can mention the Ungheni municipality, where citizens decided how to spend the local budget efficiently; the village of Bravicea in Calarasi rayon, which has a community newspaper, written and distributed by young people and local elected representatives; Calarasi, where, with the help of the Peace Corps, 37 street signs were installed; the village of Sipoteni, where the rescue and volunteer fire station was opened; the village of Carpineni, the village where households have been taught how to make compost from biodegradable waste and even Chisinau, recognized for several successful initiatives, such as the renovation of electric transport, the Swedish buffet in schools and others. For more information, see the list of communities to be visited by the Best Practices Programme team.

For the current edition of the Best Practices Program 104 of the most innovative good practices, implemented by 64 local public authorities in Moldova, participate. Sections to which local public authorities submitted their initiatives are: 1Transparency of local governance - a prerequisite for increasing citizens' trust in the administration; 2. Local development through community involvement; 3. Cultural – historical heritage, the resource for the revitalization of the community, and 4. Public quality services in support of citizens. 

As the distribution of best practices on regions, the Central region remains the most active. Therefore, the from Centre 45 good practices from 24 localities were submitted; in the South - 33 good practices from 21 localities and 26 best practices from 19 municipalities were submitted from the Northern region of the country.

"We should promote and support innovation, because we need the solutions of local authorities that come with interesting projects and little money - they do great things. I like, for example, the idea of the Bravicea community to publish a newspaper, the museum from the Hasnasenii Mari and other authorities that have organized interesting festivals and activities”, mentioned the president of CALM, Tatiana Badan.

The best examples of best practices will be included in an anthology of best practices and will be awarded at a festive ceremony at the end of 2017.

"I liked the idea of the road signs from Calarasi, because my village also faced this problem - many streets were old and the ambulance did not know the addresses. Today every street has its name and number. If we promote such ideas further, other primaries will observe and realize them in their communities. There are practices worthwhile to be known by others”, said Valeriu Musteata, Mayor of Saiti village and member of the Steering Group.

The Steering Group of the Best Practices Programme monitors and evaluates the implementation of the Best Practices Program, oversees the evaluation and selection of best practices of local government.

The Best Practices Programme of Local Authorities in Moldova is implemented by the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) "Viitorul", with the financial support of the Council of Europe. The Programme aims at identifying, promoting and disseminating good practices among local public authorities in the Republic of Moldova, thus contributing to the efficiency of local governance.
