The level of decentralization in Georgia is low. Municipalities have limited competencies and resources to properly perform their functions. The regional and local development planning and implementation tools are underdeveloped. With support from the Austrian Development Cooperation and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the United Nations Development Programme works to advance regional and local development through strengthening capacities of central and local authorities.
