The General Concept of the Urban Housing Systemic Reform in Georgia

The way forward for reforms in the housing sector: empowering grass root homeowners’ associations in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine  is the three-year project that has implemented since 2015 in Germany and 5 Eastern Partnership countries, including Georgia in its three most populous cities: Tbilisi, Batumi and Kutaisi. The goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations (CSOs) in the housing sector in the target countries.

The institutional structure arrangement; 6. Scientific and methodological basis; 7. Information support and monitoring; 8. Urban management; 9. Financial and economic support; 10. Planning and design; 11. Socio-psychological aspects.

According to German Expert, Mr. Thomas Janicki, “the respective recommendations have the potential of making a significant contribution to improving the current situation.
