UNDP Ukraine project "Legal empowerment of the poor: fostering land and property rights" would like to thank the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" for the professional and peer support of the project in Ukraine.
During our joint activities, the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" has shown itself as experienced and professional organization in the field of land relations in Ukraine. It is engaged not only in spreading awareness on land issues, but also in regulatory activities.
We grew convinced in effectiveness of the Association while interacting with public authorities and NGOs, participating in the development of recommendations to legislation and regulations and promoting adoption thereof.
Together with the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" we conducted a series of measures aimed at developing the legal framework covering issues of land relations. Experts of the Association prepared a series of information guides on land issues and conducted numerous training seminars.
We would like to stress on the following outcomes that we jointly with the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" achieved:
• Experts of the 742 public legal aid centers of regional branches of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, 55 NGOs, 4 legal clinics participated in interactive trainings on topical issues regarding land legislation where delivered by the experts of "Land Union of Ukraine".
• More than 180,000 people have received primary free legal aid from providers of free primary legal aid, trained on topical issues regarding land legislation in the framework of the project by the experts of "Land Union of Ukraine".
• 5,000 informational manuals on topical issues regarding land legislation and property rights, were developed by experts of the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" in the framework of the project, and distributed among providers of legal aid and low-income population of Ukraine.
We also would like to note that the Web-portal of the Association is one of the best sources of relevant and objective information on land issues for professionals in land relations as well as for the citizens, farmers etc.
We are confident that our joint work with the Association "Land Union of Ukraine" has a positive impact on the development of land relations in Ukraine, and successfully promotes legal awareness of the population of Ukraine regarding land legislation.
