The Governance Reform Fund (GRF) is more than a decade-long initiative to assist the Government of Georgia with major institutional reforms in the country. Kicked off in 2003, in the aftermath of the Rose Revolution, the programme sought to promote targeted anti-corruption measures. Later, it has expanded into a comprehensive assistance programme aiming to enhance efficiency of public institutions through policy advice, technical assistance, skills development and on-demand consultancy.

What We Do

UNDP works hand in hand with the Swedish Government to strengthen the public sector in Georgia and ease the implementation of the Government’s reform agenda. The current phase of the programme was set in motion in 2015 and will end in 2020. During this period, particular emphasis is devoted to further rapprochement to the European values and principles.
