What we do
UNDP plays a leading role in international engagement, especially in Abkhazia, Georgia, including coordination, strategic guidance and advice to the Georgian Government, donors and implementing partners. We also assist the displaced and their host communities to become self-sustainable, receive better education, start new businesses and improve job prospects.
Building confidence across conflict divides
The Confidence Building Early Response Mechanism (COBERM) is an apolitical, impartial and flexible programme funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP. Since 2010, the programme has supported up to 200 local civil society initiatives on all sides of conflict divides, seeking to improve the lives of people affected by conflict, enhance people-to-people contacts and foster peace and stability. With over a million of direct and indirect beneficiaries, COBERM is an effective mechanism for testing innovative approaches to confidence building and opening new communication channels across conflict divides.
Peace & Development
The Crises Prevention and Recovery portfolio of UNDP in Georgia hosts the sub-regional Peace & Development Programme with the Regional Peace and Development Advisor (RPDA) leading the work of the team in the South Caucasus. The team includes the RPDA and three National PDAs in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. The team provides support for the three UN Country Teams (UNCT) in the South Caucasus in terms of political analysis, conflict-related crisis preparedness and peacebuilding programming support.
