 This review addresses the territorial dimension of a range of policy challenges in the Ukraine, including Urkraine's productivity challenge, large inter-regional disparities, and need for decentralisation.



Improving sub-national level governance and service provision

This chapter examines territorial governance in Ukraine, focusing on the ability of subnational governments to support the implementation of national policies and to provide the local goods and services needed to support economic development and ensure an adequate quality of life for citizens. The chapter pays particular attention to the interplay between three strands of reform – decentralisation, territorial reforms and reforms to the system of intergovernmental fiscal relations – arguing that success depends not on any one reform in isolation but on aligning the three. It also looks closely at the challenges of monitoring and evaluation the quality of public services.
