The document also urges to improve good governance, ensure energy independence, and implement energy efficiency programs in power generation, transmission and consumption, particularly in the housing sector. Civic organizations also presented Sectoral Briefs on Reforms in Ukraine: analytical documents prepared for the conference in Canada. These documents set out details of the goals and key objectives of reforms in 12 areas of national policy. The Toronto Principles is a vision document conveying generalized vision of over 80 civil society organizations (CSO), representatives of the private sector and citizens actively supporting reforms in Ukraine. The “Principles” envisage joint accountability, experience and ability of these organizations to represent views of Ukrainian civil society. This document was prepared during December 2018 – June 2019 by a group of experts coordinated by the Coalition Reanimation Package of Reforms by consulting with over 100 sectoral experts.
