By promoting local self-governance and community-based initiatives UNDP has significantly contributed to creating an enabling environment for long-term social-economic and community development at the local level (both rural and municipal). About 1 million people in the rural area of Ukraine benefited from social infrastructure improvement including primary health care points, water supply and energy efficiency measures.  Energy saving resulted in reducing energy costs on average by 45% through repair of street lighting,  heating systems, window insulation, roof repair in schools, kindergartens and health-care centres. Level of participatory decision-making in UNDP partner communities is by 34% higher then Ukrainian average.
