Human and Institutional Capacity Development 2020 Program

Project Dates: September 2015 - November 2020
Key institutions in Georgia’s government, civil society, and private sector are closing performance gaps that have historically inhibited reform and sustainable development.

For a country to develop economically, politically, and technologically, its basic organizational and administrative systems must function smoothly. In Georgia, many public institutions still rely on counterproductive management systems and outdated work processes. The USAID Human and Institutional Capacity Development 2020 program increased the effectiveness and sustainability of Georgia’s governmental, nongovernmental, and private sectoral entities. Chemonics partnered with prime contractor Mendez England & Associates to provide organizational development expertise and advisory services to key Georgian partner organizations.
