Promoting Good Land Governance (2021-22)

მწვანე ალტერნატივა ლოგო

Land has crucial importance to economic and social development, growth, poverty reduction, and governance. Land is related to wider development issues and objectives and therefore, land issues have multiple dimensions - political, economic, technical, legal, and institutional. The multidimensional character of land issues requires a carefully designed, effective land policy which considers historical, political, economic and social contexts. Unfortunately, till now, Georgia does not have a national land policy which would have defined the shared goals and established a legitimate, legal and socially acceptable basis for land-related decisions. As a result, land reform, which began in the 1990s, has not yet been completed.

In 2021-2022 in frames of the cooperation project Supported by Heinrich Boell Foundation, Tbilisi, South Caucasus, Green Alternative   will: (1) monitor and analyze developments in land sector; priority will be given to reforms (and follow up actions) that have taken place during last years and assessment of their effectiveness; (2) anticipate and respond to new developments be it legal proposals, policy initiatives or decision-making on land-related investments; (3) build knowledge and advocate for responsible land governance, emphasizing on responsible land-based investments; and (4) create spaces for dialogue between relevant actors on better land governance in Georgia.
