Georgia has been selected by USAID Administrator Shah as one of two focus countries in the Europe and Eurasia (E&E) region for Science, Technology, Innovation, and Partnership (STIP). In response, USAID/Caucasus is examining how STIP can address the most significant development challenges and opportunities in Georgia.
USAID's Judicial Independence and Legal Empowerment Project supports and strengthens the judiciary as an independent yet equal branch of government, and improves Georgia’s commercial law system. Activities aim to improve the process by which judges are appointed, trained and disciplined to increase their independence and professionalism. The project also further strengthens the state free legal aid system and the legal NGO community, and increases public understanding of the role of the judiciary.
The Georgia Primary Education (G-PriEd) Project contributes to this goal by ensuring that primary Grade 1-6 students acquire foundational reading skills in Georgian language and across the curriculum.
USAID’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy for Georgia
Georgia is a key U.S. ally in the Caucasus region and is a gateway for energy resources from the Caspian Sea to Europe and beyond. The Government of Georgia (GOG) is committed to advance democratic and economic reform, strengthen the rule of law, and improve social services. Georgia’s 2012 Parliamentary Elections were historic and represented the first peaceful, competitive, and constitutional transfer of power in the region.
