A first rural development Advocacy Manual in Georgia, developed to promote local activism in rural areas from the municipalities of Tetritskaro, Lagodekhi, Dedoplistskaro, Akhalkalaki, Borjomi, Kazbegi, Keda and Khulo. It is produced with the support of the European Union and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in partnership with the Civil Development Agency (CiDA) under the ENPARD programme.
The advocacy manual equips local community members and self-organised citizens’ unions with practical knowledge and instruments to carry out advocacy activism in their respective municipalities and promotes the concept of rural development across the country. The advocacy activism is expected to help establish constructive working relations between citizens and local self-government bodies, assist in shaping local rural development projects and increase government accountability for achieving tangible results for the benefit of people and communities.
