In 2021, the UN agencies in Georgia continued to work together to support the national development priorities of Georgia including response to COVID-19 pandemic, among others.
During 2021, the UN focused its efforts to strengthen governance system through fostering the national public administration reform, increase livelihoods, support the labor market and strengthen economic opportunities, develop recovery plans that embraced improved environmental governance, climate action and sustainable management and use of natural resources in Georgia.
UN continued working with national and local authorities, social partners, civil society and the private sector to strengthen Georgia’s capacity in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, improving primary health care, maternal and child health, and delivered support to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged persons and communities, including the conflict-affected people.
In 2021, the UN continued its work in conflict-affected communities based on ideals enshrined in the UN charter and internationally recognized normative frameworks, including human rights standards and humanitarian principles. Another important aspect of this component of the UN’s work is to preserve and create space for dialogue leading to reconciliation and sustainable peace within and across divided communities.
