As stated by the ADB, the proposed sector development program (SDP), through investment and policy support, will strengthen electricity grid security, improve the regulatory framework, and pave the way for greater private sector participation in the development of energy storage and renewable energy including wind, solar, and green hydrogen. The program supports the government's goals of reforming the energy sector, enhancing cross-border electricity trading, and improving the efficiency of the transmission network, as reflected in Asian Development Bank's country partnership strategy for Georgia, 2019-2023.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
