The city authorities are looking for and implement various mechanisms and ways of solving local problems Many different programmes are working in the city, but the Municipal Governance and Sustainable Development Programme implemented by UNDP is considered to be one of the most successful. At first, UNDP/MGSDP provided trainings, consultations and supported us in all our endeavors. During this period, we learned how to cooperate with the communities and support them in solving their specific problems. People believed in the Programme and started approaching us for possible cooperation. In such cooperation with MGSDP, we used to implement 2-3 successful projects per year. But at the beginning of each year we faced the need to convince the city councilors and authorities in the necessity of such work.
Municipal Sustainable Development Programme The municipality has prepared its own «Municipal Sustainable Development Programme for 2009 – 2012». In this Programme, the principles and methods propagated by MGSDP as well as its experience and mechanisms are used. It allows searching for opportunities of projects implementation without spending time for convincing in the importance of the Programme. Purpose of the Programme involving the communities of the city into solving the problems of social, economic and environmental nature for improvement of their own welfare and quality of life.

Forming and developing self- sufficient community organizations able to initiate and implement their own initiatives in coordination with local authorities and other stakeholders. Improving relevant skills and knowledge of community self-organization bodies and local authorities on the agenda of sustainable development. Strengthening the institutional capacity of self-governing community organizations to identify needs and priorities of sustainable development of the territorial community of the city.
