The Public Hearings completed the public consultation process on the targets that were initiated by the NGO “MAMA-86” in early September 2010.

Thanks to these measures the public had an opportunity to become aware of the proposed targets for Ukraine, to provide comments and discuss feedback from stakeholders.

The results of Public Hearings were be presented 10 November 2010 at the Fourth Meeting of the Steering Group of Senior level of the National Political Dialogue on integrated water resources management in Ukraine.
