Support to Public Administration Reform (PAR) in Georgia project
In 2016 UNDP has rolled out new, multi-year initiative, “Support to Public Administration Reform (PAR) in Georgia,” addressing a complementary but distinct set of specific, predetermined needs in three crucial areas (Policy development and Cooperation; Civil Service and Human Resource Management and Service Delivery) within the PAR Reform Roadmap. The initiative intends to sustain, support and build key institutions and processes required for advancing the Public Administration Reform through offering consultancy, capacity building, technical assistance etc. Development of professional and modern civil service and public administration are decisive for ensuring the resilience of Georgia to internal and external shocks and for achieving the country’s human development objectives by ensuring citizens’ access to their rights and services, as well as facilitating the development of better public policies.
