The cornerstone of the cooperation is a memorandum in which the city of Chernivtsi and the project “Municipal Development and Rehabilitation of the Historic Center of Lviv” agree to cooperate. The memorandum was signed at the the “The Integrated Urban Development Academy”.
The integrated urban development concept is the sustainable strategy for the development of the city center of Chernivtsi until the year 2030. It was developed in an intensive participatory process, involving local actors, various specialized offices of the city administration, municipal in-house operations and important public institutions.
