Transparent, Financially Healthy and Competitive Self-governments in Moldova

Project is financed by the SlovakAid – Official Development Assistance of the Slovak Republic and the Embassy of the United States in Moldova.

Partners:
•    Institute for Economic and Social Reforms (INEKO) in Slovakia
•    National Endowment for Democracy. – Improving Oversight of Local Governments in Moldova

Duration:
October 15, 2015 – March 15, 2017

Objectives:
The main objective of the project is to support regional development in Moldova through know-how transfer of successful projects implemented in Slovakia. By implementing the project, we would like to strengthen financial decentralization competencies of municipalities, to strengthen their capacities at improving living conditions of their citizens, to increase citizens’ awareness of self-government significance, financial sustainability and transparency.

The specific objectives of the project are:
1.    To reduce corruption at the local level by formulating the Anti-corruption measures reflecting anti-corruption priorities of Moldovan self-government bodies and the best anti-corruption practices from Slovakia (e.g. publishing of public contracts on the Internet, public presence at meetings of self-government bodies, the public recording of these meetings, etc.).
2.    To intensify public demand for the efficient public spending of municipalities. An online portal on financial management of Moldovan municipalities will be updated and improved; portal will dramatically improve information about municipalities’ fiscal management and will enable comparison of key debt and financial sustainability parameters. In this part of the project we plan to utilize unique know-how from a similar project, which has been successfully implemented in the Slovak Republic and led to a dramatic decline in debt of municipalities within last two years.
3.    To increase the competitiveness of Moldova regions by creating an interactive competitiveness model and comprehensive analysis of competitive advantages and disadvantages of Moldovan regions (districts). The analysis will examine the level and quality of economic activity, infrastructure, human resources and public administration in regions, will identify barriers to economic development and will propose competitiveness strategies for 32 districts of Moldova. Know-how will be derived from a similar and successful project implemented in Slovakia.
