 Development Effectiveness Brief
Georgia: Development Effectiveness Brief

Georgia became a member of ADB in 2007. In the same year, operations commenced with the approval of a private sector loan to the Commercial Bank of Georgia. 

An interim operational strategy guides ADB’s investments in Georgia ahead of a new country partnership strategy now under preparation.

Since operations began, the close partnership between ADB, the government, and development partners has seen significant progress made in the development of key sectors of the small nation strategically located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.

The country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Georgia and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
