UNDP and European Union join hands to assist the Parliament in its efforts to represent the needs and views of Georgian citizens more effectively, to streamline law-making processes, and to enhance government control. Much focus is placed on strengthening cooperation with European counterparts, launching public dialogue about European integration and ensuring easier access to public information.

We assist in:

  • Completing Parliament’s Institutional Reform Plan;
  • Advancing Parliament’s relations with international counterparts and ensuring effective communication to public;
  • Inviting high-level international advisors for strategic advice to the Parliament’s leadership;
