The Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) has proved to be an effective policy-making tool and has been integrated into policy and legislative processes in an increasing number of countries. Over the last few years, the Government of Georgia has embarked on the process of institutionalizing RIA as an integral part of policy-making.
From April to July, ISET will lead an online training program in Regulatory Impact Assessment aimed at equipping the members of participating institutions with the required technical skills and understanding of the procedures associated with carrying out the RIA in accordance with the methodology set out by the government of Georgia in January 2020.
ISET offers training sessions lasting two hours within four practical workshops on four different topics. The workshops are delivered in English by experienced and professional instructors, all to be held on Saturdays.
The European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development in Georgia (ENPARD Georgia) was implemented in March 2013. The main goal of the ENPARD program is to reduce rural poverty in Georgia.1 The total budget of the program is 102 million EUR.
Georgia committed to harmonizing its electricity market legislation with EU Third Energy Package and liberalizing it according to the accession protocol with the Energy Community. These structural changes are expected to contribute to the more efficient functioning of the Georgian electricity market and to support its development.
