Project description: 

The present housing facilities accommodating sizeable numbers of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Western Georgia are densely populated, mostly lacking individual sanitation facilities, are generally in poor condition and severely in need of rehabilitation. The present standard of housing of the IDPs is considered well below the average living standard of the population in Georgia which justifies immediate intervention for amelioration.

Georgia has received a financial contribution from the Government of Germany through KfW Development Bank for the Emergency Rehabilitation of IDP Housing in Western Georgia. It is intended to contribute to the improvement of living conditions of the IDPs and to their integration into Georgian society.

The Consulting services shall cover two major fields of intervention:

A: Social Component

B: Technical Component

The objective of the envisaged project is to ameliorate the living conditions of the IDPs and to facilitate their integration into Georgian society by contributing to rehabilitation of the present accommodation facilities, partly supplemented by new construction where essentially required, and tentative new housing construction.
