Recall that from 2017, Transparency International Ukraine evaluates the transparency of the 100 largest cities, encouraging city councils to disclose information and engage the public in decision-making. During the years 2017-2018, the transparency indicator has increased by an average of 12% and now stands at 40 points. The competition of the cities is increasing. Back in 2017, 59.7 points were enough to be at the top of the rating, however now the leader city has over 85 points.

 

Over the past two years, the Transparency Ranking of 100 Ukranian Cities has already been a driver for many changes. But there is still a lot of work to be done with those local authorities who are ignoring this project.
