With the budget of โ‚ฌ 1.6 million the project is co-funded by the European Union and the Parliament of Georgia, and will be implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.

The project builds on the UNDPโ€™s decade long assistance to the Parliament in the main areas of its constitutional responsibility.
