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.  

The strategic thrust of the country operations business plan, 2016-2018, is consistent with priorities of  CPS, 2014-2018. The plan has identified the following areas where support to the government will be focused. 

  • Improve internal and regional market connectivity to enhance private sector competitiveness and to broaden community access to economic opportunities.
  • Make essential drinking water, sewerage, and sanitation services more accessible and reliable, particularly in smaller towns and secondary cities that are potential hubs for agribusiness and tourism.
  • Improve the security and stability of power systems, especially for communities in lagging regions.
  • Strengthen public sector management for domestic resource mobilization and investment in business and infrastructure.
  • 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.
