The European Union and UNDP continue to assist parliamentary democracy in Georgia. A new initiative was officially launched on Thursday, 10 April 2014.
David Usupashvili, Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia; Ambassador Philip Dimitrov, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia; and Niels Scott, UNDP Resident Representative in Georgia, delivered a key speech.
The 2.5-year project will assist the Parliament to facilitate the cooperation with the European counterparts; promote a public dialogue about the European integration;invite high-level international advisors for strategic advice to the Parliament’s leadership; control the state budget effectively; provide Citizens with easier access to information.
In addition, the European Union and UNDP will help the Parliament to complete the ongoing institutional reform, as well as revise the Parliament’s Rules of Procedures and align them with the latest constitutional amendments.
With the budget of € 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 UNDP’s decade long assistance to the Parliament in the main areas of its constitutional responsibility.
