The assignment is also financed by the European Union. 
The project aims at strengthening good governance capacity for the local administration and NGOs of the regional capitals Vinnitsa and Cherkasy and at strengthening financial transparency in the management of those cities centered on experience of performance-based budgeting already introduced in Polish cities.
The participants were local officials from Vinnitsa and Cherkassy and NGO representatives who are implementing projects financially supported by PAUCI and aimed at increasing financial transparency of local authorities and public participation in budgeting processes.
