Capacity building trainings for Georgian civil society organizations in Telavi, Kakheti region

On March 6-7, capacity building training for Georgian civil society organizations (CSO) took place in Telavi, Kakheti region. The training is an  integral part of the EESC-led project “Georgia on European Way: Creation of Effective Model for DCFTA and SME Strategy Implementation” supported by the European Union and implemented by an international consortsium of European and Georgian organizations.

The project aims to address the lack of awareness in Georgia about opportunities afforded by the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), an integral part of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement signed in 2014. 

The aim of training, which to be help in all region sof Georgia, is to enable CSO’s to independently lead public information campaigns about DCFTA implementation in Georgia. Following these events capacity building trainings and seminars for small medium enterprises (SME) and public officials will also be organized. In addition, DCFTA Local Advisory Council and DCFTA Central Advisory Council will be created. Finally, a comprehensive project study will be prepared including results of consecutive mappings of CSOs and SMEs conducted at the beginning and end of the project with the addition of recommendations from the meetings of the Advisory Councils. Currently we are sharing our initial study "Results of the DCFTA Related Mappings of Georgian SMEs and CSOs" in English and Georgian languages.
