Earlier this year, the European Union has launched the development of a new generation of Country Roadmaps for EU Engagement with civil society. The former Roadmap (see below) covered 2014-2017. The new roadmaps, to cover 2018-2020, are meant to improve the impact, predictability and visibility of EU support to civil society in the neighbourhood, and to ensure consistency and synergy throughout the many sectors covered by EU assistance. They are also meant to stimulate better co-ordination and sharing of best practices with EU Member States and other international actors.
Following consultations with civil society in Tbilisi (11-12 October 2018) but also in Telavi (16 October) and Kutaisi (17 October), as well as contributions from EU Member States, the EU has formally adopted the new Roadmap on 18 December 2018. The English version can be found below and will be accompanied by a translation into Georgian by mid-January 2019.
The following seven priorities have been identified as an outcome of the consultations and reflect the main lines of engagement in the years to come between the EU and its Member States, on one side, and the civil society in Georgia, on the other side:
A follow up round of consultations with the civil society and other key stakeholders will take place early 2019, to present and discuss these priorities and their implementation.
