The European Union supports the democratic development of Georgia. After the signing of the Association Agreement, the Public Administration Reform (PAR) is an important element to sustain the democratic turn of Georgia. Achieving an efficient and transparent public administration is the reform’s proclaimed aim and has been agreed upon between the European Union and the Georgian government.
A Civil Society Forum for Western Georgia will be created. Civil Society Organizations from Imereti, Guria and Racha-Lechkhumi will cooperate and monitor the implementation of the PAR in 8 municipalities. The results will be based on a monitoring mechanism, measuring the efficiency, transparency and inclusiveness of local authorities in Khoni, Bagdati, Terjola, Vani, Ozurgeti, Lanchkhuti, Tsageri and Ambrolauri.
Local needs’ assessment will be carried out and relevant recommendations will be elaborated and included in Local Action Plans of target municipalities. Regular reports on PAR monitoring and regional developments will be published,
Fund “Sukhumi”, along with the project partners, will make the voice of civil society work in Western Georgia heard: a national advocacy campaign and a comprehensive media campaign will highlight the importance and the progress of civil society work in Western Georgia.
The project is funded by the European Union.
