UNDP in Georgia: Civil Service Innovation Grants in Support of the Public Administration Reform

  • Facilitate lasting partnership between the government and civil society organizations.
  • Enhance the role of the civil society in the PAR process.
  • Encourage the flow of the best, innovative international practices in the context of PAR.
