UNDP assists the Georgian Parliament in its efforts to represent the needs and views of Georgian citizens more effectively, to simplify law-making procedures, and to improve human resource management and public relations. The project is structured around partnership between the Georgian parliament and the Eastern European, Baltic and Nordic parliaments. Those partnerships provide access to expertise and capacity-development opportunities for both MPs and the parliament staff.

What We Do

We assist in:

  • Strengthening the role of the parliament in the budget process through exercising oversight of its execution in conjunction with the Chamber of Control.
  • Conducting the parliament’s work in the area of local self-government, which includes more space for public policy dialogue.
  • Strengthening technical support to committees and factions.
