The United Nations system in Georgia is a unique set of diverse institutions –funds, programs and specialized agencies– united by common vision for the development of Georgia and empowerment of its people.

Georgia joined the United Nations on 31 July 1992, shortly after the country became independent. In the span of last 28 years, the United Nations has very much been part of Georgia’s history and development.

Working closely with the government of Georgia, civil society, and other national and international partners, the UN works to respond to national development needs and improve the economic and social conditions of people in Georgia.

Within its mandate to support Georgia to achieve its national priorities, the United Nations is providing tailor-made support to address the issues of sustainable human development while also supporting the national priority goal of European Integration.

UN’s support covers a diverse range of areas, including economic well-being, health, human rights, education, agriculture, industry, environmental protection, gender equality, effective governance and the rule of law. In the crisis areas, UN stands with people who suffer from crises and need help in relief and recovery.

As a reliable partner to the people of Georgia in addressing key national challenges and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UN brings worldwide experience and advice to help Georgia build a better life and become a prosperous, peaceful, and resilient society, leaving no one behind.
