Kutaisi wins national best practice award for smart eco-city portfolio

The National Association of Local Authorities of Georgia (NALAG) announced the winners of its annual best local government and municipal practices competition.

The initiative was supported by the European Union, UNDP and Denmark, under their broader assistance for regional and local development in Georgia, including through the EU-funded programme Mayors for Economic Growth Facility (M4EG). Fourteen municipalities were awarded this year, with Kutaisi winning the national award for the smart eco-city portfolio.

Earlier this year, Kutaisi was selected by the EU and UNDP for a two-year-long journey to explore a smart eco-city model and nature-based urban innovation and facilitate the transition towards green and sustainable life. This municipal transformation portfolio received €225,000 in funding from the EU under the M4EG Facility.
