The successful implementation of public administration reform (PAR) plays a major role in Georgia’s integration into the European Union.
An important component of strengthening local self-government, is the improvement of electronic services of municipalities. The COVID-19 pandemic particularly showed the importance of this issue.
In the framework of the project “A common forum for CSOs from Guria, Imereti and Racha-Lechkhumi for PAR Roadmap monitoring”, in October 2019, a forum of civil society organizations from Guria, Imereti and Racha-Lechkhumi was created. These organizations carry out monitorin of public administration reform (PAR) in 8 municipalities of western Georgia. As a result of monitoring, an assessment of local self-government was carried out in terms of efficiency, transparency and inclusiveness in the municipalities of Khoni, Bagdati, Terjola, Vani, Ozurgeti, Lanchkhuti, Tsageri and Ambrolauri.
The monitoring results are reflected in the first publication prepared in frames of the project “Monitoring of Roadmap of Public Administration Reform (PAR) in 8 municipalities of Western Georgia”.
The project is implemented with the support the European Union - #EU4Georgia
