Project is supported by EEA grants and Slovak Republic state budget

Working Together for a Green Europe


Fund operated by:




Basic project information:

Programme: Cross-border cooperation / Good governance, Accountable Institutions, Transparency
Programme outcome: SK-UA institutional cooperation enhanced
Project duration: 25.9.2020 – 30.4.2024 (duration of activities depends on milestones)
Project will be implemented in Zakarpattya region of Ukraine and in Košice region
Project is aimed at the improvement of integrity and accountability of public institutions in Slovakia and Ukraine: participative processes of strategic planning involve wide public. This approach, together with providing of complex information will ensure, that identified measurements will be more effective and cheaper than in case of directive planning. If public have information, bad and expensive solutions can be eliminated.
Main goals:
  • to better prepare the border regions for expected climate change by development of a climate change adaptation strategy for the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine and prove it (adaptation strategy had been developed) by pilot actions.
  • to increase readiness for introducing of effective elements in public transport by development of Sustainable transport model for Uzhhorod using experiences of Kosice and Presov region
  • to increase availability of information about climate change, necessity of mitigation measurements and possibilities to adapt to expected climate stimuli.
Project activities:


1. Adaptation strategy and its application on local level (AS for Transcarpathian region and Local strategy for Roňava basin + revitalizations in Uzhhorod)

2. Sustainable transport model for Uzhhorod using experiences of Košice region

3. Dissemination of the information related to various aspects of adaptation to climate change and mitigation 

Expected results:
  • Produced important strategic documents for Zakarpattya region and Kosice region related to crucial theme of climate change
  • Transfer of know-how and best practices in the area of adaptation to climate change and sustainable mobility
  • Better availability of important information for general public


Final beneficiaries:

  • Decision makers on regional and local level will be prepared for next steps thanks to the strategies. Strategical planning will provide opportunity to work systematically and more effectively in important areas of expected (but also present) climate change.
  • Researchers will receive new information from abroad (neighbouring region). They can also provide analytical inputs to the prepared documents and will also get an opportunity for their research continuation and development.
  • General public will obtain possibility to participate on strategical planning and receive new information, that can help them to make decisions on personal level (some types of adaptation is possible “at home”) and to affect decisions on local level.
