From July 31 to August 2, the APRC attended a workshop on Agritourism Development, an event organized by the Agrarian Committee of the Parliament of Georgia and UN Women. The APRC has been commissioned to conduct a Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) of the Draft Law on Agritourism.
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.
What alternative energy sources can be used in mountainous regions of Georgia to ensure energy security, equity and environmental sustainability?

On the 17th of January, the Government of Georgia approved the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) Methodology. This is an incredible step towards evidence-based policy-making that will contribute to the country’s economic development and future prosperity.
