- building the capacity of the Communications Teams of the Parliament on social network content management and tools
- supporting the building and reinforcing partnerships between the Parliament and other OGP member parliaments
and (2) SCA’s increased institutional openness, transparency and citizen engagement through:
- facilitating the institutionalization of a legislative openness mechanism in the SCA
- providing support to the SCA’s working group on legislative openness
- supporting the SCA’s working group in developing and monitoring the implementation of openness action plans
The project targets: members and staff of the Parliament of Georgia and SCA, civil society organizations, youth, ethnic minorities, academia, media, and the public in general.
