Starting from October 26, the ISET Policy Institute team, in cooperation with the USAID Economic Governance Program, started an online training course in Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) for public servants.

The aim of the training is to provide participants from the selected institutions a clear understanding of the purpose of RIA, its structure and implementation, and how it works within the context of Georgian. The course will also develop and strengthen the participants’ technical skills that are necessary to conduct standard RIAs in accordance with the RIA methodology approved by the Government of Georgia in January 2020. The training is organized around specific RIA steps, included practical group activities every week, and will last for a total of seven weeks.

The Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) has proved to be an effective policy-making tool, and has been integrated into policy and legislative processes in an increasing number of countries. Over the last few years, the Government of Georgia has embarked on the process of institutionalizing RIA as an integral part of policy-making. In coordination with other Donors, the USAID Good Governance Initiative (GGI) hired the ISET Policy Institute to provide support to the Ministry of Justice of Georgia (MOJ) in its efforts, culminating with the realization of the Government Decree on RIA (published on the 17th of January 2020).
