Integrated Border Management at Bagratashen-Sadakhlo


The project runs under the EU Eastern Partnership Flagship and introduces European standards of integrated border management in Georgia. The project assists the governments of Georgia and Armenia in reducing the barriers for trade, transit and movement of people across the Bagratashen-Sadakhlo Border, a crossing point between two countries. The project is funded by the European Union, Government of Georgia and implemented by the UNDP.

What We Do

The Integrated Border Management (IBM) is one of the most effective tools to maintain open but also secure and controlled borders. Our expertise relies on the past successful initiatives: South Caucasus Integrated Border Management Programme and Integrated Border management at Nonitsminda-Bavra.

The present project aims at effectively tackling smuggling and trafficking, easing people’s mobility at the Bagratashen-Sadakhlo Border. We promote professional cooperation between border management agencies and provide all necessary modern equipment to Sadakhlo border guards.
