The FINANCIAL — Last week, the Committee on Sports and Youth Affairs of the Georgian Parliament discussed its 2018-2020 Strategy and Action Plan, in which youth engagement, sports integrity and development of human capital were highlighted.
The Strategy and Action Plan were developed with the assistance of the EU and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), based on the results of baseline research conducted in 2017, according to the EU Neighbours portal.
“Georgia’s legislation on youth and sports will be developing in several key areas, including youth activities, revision of the Law on Sports and development or revision of the regulations related to international legal instruments and political obligations,” said Mikheil Kavelashvili, Chairperson of the Parliament’s Committee on Sports and Youth Affairs.
“The implementation of the Association Agreement with the European Union, sports conventions and the other international political decisions, such as the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, will be in the centre of our work.”
Eight of the 15 parliamentary committees have been publishing their annual reports and three-year strategies and action plans since 2014, when the practice was first initiated with the assistance of the EU and UNDP, under their larger initiative for strengthening parliamentary democracy in Georgia.
