ADB-Georgia Partnership Strategy

ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018 for Georgia seeks to foster inclusive economic growth, while enhancing regional connectivity and ensuring environmentally sustainable growth. Its priority sectors are transport, water supply and sanitation, energy, public sector management, and finance.  

This country operations business plan (COBP) for 2017-2019 will support the Government of Georgia to:

  1. improve internal and regional market connectivity to enhance private sector competitiveness and broaden access to economic opportunities;
  2. provide reliable drinking water, sewerage, and sanitation services, particularly in secondary cities and towns that are potential hubs for agribusiness, tourism, and regional trade;
  3. improve the security and stability of electric power systems, especially for communities in lagging regions;
  4. strengthen public sector management for domestic resource mobilization, small and medium enterprise development, and infrastructure investment; and
  5. increase access to finance and promote financial inclusion, particularly for micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
