  • Strengthen government internal control mechanisms and systems;
  • Improve systems, tools and capacity of the central government to monitor the performance of local governments based on objective and measurable.


Background Information:

The Good Governance Initiative (GGI) in Georgia is a five-year activity funded by the USAID/Caucasus Mission. Its purpose is to strengthen the overall transparency, accountability and effectiveness of governance in Georgia. This is to be achieved by building linkages between different branches and levels of government in key governance systems and processes, to enhance public participation in, and public information about, those governance systems and processes to ensure greater government accountability.
