The country operations business plan (COBP), 2015-2017 for Georgia is consistent with the draft country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018; the findings from the midterm review of ADB's Strategy 2020; and the Socio-economic Development Strategy of Georgia (Georgia 2020).
ADB operations in Georgia began in December 2008. An interim operational strategy has been guiding ADB's investments in the country until a new CPS is launched. The draft CPS for 2014-2018 is in the final stages of preparation with consideration by the ADB Board of Directors expected in the first quarter of 2015.
The strategic thrust of the COBP is consistent with the priorities of the draft CPS. The plan will support the government in the following areas:
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.
