CiDA, the secretariat of the Global Compact Network Georgia, recently organised information meetings in four cities of Georgia to discuss the Sustainable Development Goals agenda and its importance for the country. These were attended by representatives of local municipalities, civil society organisations and businesses.
Representatives of the Global Compact Local Network introduced attendees to the purpose of the SDGs in Georgia and how each sector representative can contribute to their successful implementation. Representatives from different sectors also outlined the most acute problems facing their regions and discussed possible ways of resolving them.
The attendees received information about the Global Compact itself, which represents the largest corporate platform initiative in the world and promotes a sustainable and inclusive economic environment for both people and businesses.
Such meetings have so far been held in Rustavi, Telavi, Zugdidi and Mestia. Another is scheduled for Batumi. The meetings are organised as part of the Leadership for SDG in Georgia project funded by the Government of Sweden.
