In the context of armed aggression, the state authorities and local governments faced new challenges. Despite the difficult circumstances, the state authorities and local self-government bodies took all possible decisions within the framework of the current legislation aimed at protecting residents, resisting aggression, and providing assistance and services to the affected and displaced persons.
The war has become a test of strength for Ukraine: to resist the enemy, fulfill social obligations to society, remain a reliable international partner and motivation for change. The national public administration system has demonstrated fundamental resilience in extremely difficult conditions and has been able to adapt to wartime conditions.
The public authorities have demonstrated their ability to effectively perform their tasks and functions to maintain a sustainable basis for the country’s further development.
Today, the public service has not only adapted to wartime conditions, but is also ready for the next challenges. The main one is the post-war reconstruction of the country and the formation of a powerful recovery reserve for the practical fulfillment of the tasks and functions of the state in the de-occupied territories.
In pursuance of the Action Plan for the Implementation of the Strategy for the De-occupation and Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territory, approved by the CMU Resolution No. 1171 of September 29, 2021, and the CMU Resolution “On the Implementation of a Pilot Project to Create a Reserve of State Employees to Work in the De-occupied Territories of Ukraine” of May 23, 2023, No. 524, the High School of Public Governance initiated the development of advanced training programs on de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory and management of the de-occupied territory
In order to consolidate the joint efforts of representatives of state authorities and local self-governments, higher education institutions and international technical assistance projects, a working group was initiated to develop relevant educational programs.
The programs are planned to be implemented in accordance with the 2023 Advanced Training Schedule for Public Servants, Heads of Local State Administrations, their First Deputies and Deputies, and Local Self-Government Officials at the High School of Public Governance, during June-November this year, providing training for 534 people. To this end, the School plans to implement 14 short-term advanced training programs for civil servants and local self-government officials on de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory and management of the de-occupied territory:
The implementation of the above programs will contribute to raising the level of professional competence of civil servants and local self-government officials, which is aimed at developing practice-oriented skills, ensuring the reintegration of the liberated territories and sustainable development of Ukraine.
