Estonia Supports Strengthening of Georgia’s Civil Society

06.10.2011

No. 319-E

The Foreign Ministry is supporting the creation of a web environment for Georgian civil society that would improve communications among civil society organisations for exchanging information and experiences. The primary users of the interactive website would be Georgian non-profit organisations that are included in European Union Eastern Partnership co-operation.

According to Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, Estonia can use its long-time experiences in developing information and communications technology to help develop civil society in Georgia. “Promoting co-operation among civil and non-governmental organisations by creating a webpage is one opportunity to support democracy in Georgian society and establish good administrative practice,” said Paet. “It also gives practical value to co-operation that takes place in the framework of European Union Eastern Partnership,” he added.

An advisory committee has been formed to develop the webpage. The committee is made up of the Estonian, Swedish and Polish ambassadors to Georgia, representatives of the Eurasia Partnership Foundation and the Boell Institute, and a representative of the European Union delegation to Georgia.

The Foreign Ministry is supporting the development of the webpage to be used by Georgian civil society organisations with 4 960 euros. Georgia is one of Estonia’s development co-operation priority partners. We have consistently provided support to Georgia since 2000. The primary areas we have supported have been the education sector, developing good administrative practice and democracy, economic development, and environmentally sustainable development.
