Tsotne Marghia, of the Class 2018, decided to apply for an MA research scholarship at the Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation, following in the footsteps of another ISET student last year. Tsotne succeeded in being granted the scholarship, allowing him to purchase the necessary books and papers, as well as having the opportunity to attend conferences abroad.

The topic of his MA thesis is “Interdependence between Macroeconomic and Financial Stability Indicators: Macro-Feedback Effect”, a subject he decided to research after his internship at the National Bank of Georgia.

The international financial crisis of 2007-2008 has proved that financial stability is a key concept for understanding economic sustainability. Financial imbalances can lead to potentially harmful macroeconomic outcomes. Ignoring this concept may lead to misleading policy recommendations and decisions by policymakers.

On Monday January 22, the Agricultural Policy Research Center (APRC) presented the results of the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) of the Draft Law of Georgia on Biodiversity to the stakeholders.

The RIA on the Draft Law of Georgia on Biodiversity was jointly implemented between July and December 2017 by an ISET team and the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture of Georgia and was financed by GIZ.

The biodiversity of the South Caucasus is of global importance, and Georgia is committed to meeting the goal of reducing negative factors directly affecting threatened natural habitats through the sustainable management of these habitats. National biodiversity law integrating these global demands was drafted by the Government of Georgia with the support of the international community in order to improve the regulatory framework of the country.
