The general objective of this project is to support the Administration of the Government of Georgia (AoG) to analyze crisis management and governance before and during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specifically, the project aims to support the AoG in:

  • Analyzing crisis management and governance practices of the Government of Georgia during the pandemic outbreak in 2020 and assessing how Georgia’s crisis management system functioned in response to the pandemic;
  • Analyzing international best practices on crisis management addressing challenges posed by COVID-19; and
  • Developing recommendations and guidelines for the relevant agencies involved in crisis management, based on the findings of the analysis.

Through this intervention, PMCG will assess Georgia’s crisis management system and its response to the pandemic.

PMCG, as a subcontractor of Tetra Tech Ard, is implementing the USAID Good Governance Initiative to support the Government of Georgia in strengthening the overall transparency, accountability, and effectiveness of selected governance and service delivery systems. The GGI’s work targets the legislative and executive branches at both central and local government levels.   

In the framework of the GGI, the AoG has been tasked with organizing and coordinating the implementation of a study with the support of development partners, revolving around the following three key directions:

  1. Crisis management and governance;
  2. Legal system for crisis management; and
  3. Human rights and socio-economic protection.

PMCG is supporting the AoG to analyze the first component of a study on crisis management and governance when the pandemic broke out.
