EU-UNDP Joint Project

“Enhanced Mediation and Arbitration for Fairer and Faster Commercial Dispute Resolution” is a joint initiative of the European Union (EU) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Working closely with the Georgian Government, judiciary, private sector and educational institutions, the European Union and UNDP will continue promoting the use of fair and efficient mediation and arbitration in commercial disputes, enhancing professionalism of Georgian mediators and arbitrators and thus assisting the country to improve business environment and access to justice.
Improvement of Georgia’s business and investment environment has been defined as one of the key priorities of the EU-Georgia Association Agenda, which confirmed the need to develop Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms to facilitate economic development, improve business environment and ensure better legal system and access to justice.
The project is being implemented in 2019-2020, contributing to the EU’s larger programme EU4Business as well as to Georgia’s progress in achieving Sustainable Development Goals.
The intended outcome of the project contributes to the social-economic development of Georgia by promoting fairer and faster commercial dispute resolution through effectively functioning of alternative dispute resolution system.
