The successful decentralization reform in Ukraine has facilitated the development of local communities that are now the foundation of resistance to Russian aggression and the backbone of Ukraine’s home front. Local agricultural entrepreneurship has managed to ensure food security in Ukrainian communities when large companies’ logistics were ruined due to Russia’s brutal aggression. Cooperation between hromadas and local businesses is vital to ensure the economic transformation of communities, speakers at the UCMC event within the USAID DOBRE program agree, hear more from them in Ukraine In Flames #204.
