The most innovative good practice projects from 30 communities in the Republic of Moldova are to be visited in the next period to see live how the success stories are implemented. The communities were selected on July 19, by the members of the Steering Group of the Best Practices Programme of Local Authorities at a meeting. The Best Practices Programme is implemented by IDIS "Viitorul" with the support of the Council of Europe and 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.
Among the good practices with which the communities of the country pride themselves, we can mention the tourist route "Dor de Codru" in the Central region of Moldova, which includes more than 20 objectives in the villages Ciorești, Dolna and Micleușeni; the modern market in the village of Selemet arranged with the support of the natives, where over 1000 farmers from the region can sell their products; the inclusive community center that unites the 200 inhabitants of the village of Schineni; the "La Hramul căruțașilor" festival in the village of Bravicea, the tradition of ornaments in Slobozia Mare or the craft center for the 40 folk crafts in the village of Pelinia (Drochia rayon) and the list can continue. For more information, see the List of communities to be visited by the Best Practices Programme team.
In this year's competition, 64 of the most innovative best practices, implemented by 41 local public authorities from Moldova, participate in the period 2017-2018. The sections to which the local public administrations have applied their best practices are: 1. Transparency makes the difference! 2. Local involvement for urban revitalization; 3. Cultural heritage and authentic traditions; 4. Smart communities through efficient public services.
As the distribution of best practices on regions, the Central region remains the most active. Therefore, from the Centre 37 good practices from 23 localities were submitted; in the North - 10 good practices from 10 communities and 17 best practices from 8 municipalities were submitted from the Northen region of the country.
"We have in the Republic of Moldova many localities from which we have what to learn and from which we can inspire. And the best practices identified in this edition of the Best Practices Programme are really hopeful that they will become role models for the communities that want to develop. I am also pleased to see communities participating for the first time in the programme and I hope it does not stop there”, said the CALM President, Tatiana Badan.
After will be visited, the communities will organize open day, and the best examples of good practice will be included in an Anthology of Good Practices and will be awarded at a festive ceremony, at the end of 2019.
“A good part of the practices presented at this edition shows that with little money, great and beautiful things can be done, especially regarding the valorization of the cultural heritage and the local development. I also appreciate those communities that carry out projects that can be taken over by other localities. For example, like the megaphone installed at the Cimișlia Town Hall, in Săiți we have in the park and in the center two loudspeakers that transmit radio broadcasts and announcements from the local public administration from morning to evening. And these activities are attractive for people”, stressed Valeriu Musteață, the mayor of the village of Săiți and a member of the Steering Group.
And Eduard Ungureanu, IREX expert in the program "Comunitatea mea" added: "I was impressed and applauded that some success stories can be achieved both with the support of the community, but also from the local budget, without the need for a village hall to call to donors and to be dependent on external financing”.
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.
