Georgia - Introduction of road maintenance microenterprises in Georgia report I : first findings : jgufur principze agebuli sasoflo gzebis regularuli teqnikuri momsaxurebis samuSaoebi (Georgian)

The condition of the local road network in Georgia is very poor. Since 2007, the maintenance of these roads is the responsibility of the local municipal authorities (Rayoni), which have limited resources and capacities to carry out proper maintenance. The Government of Georgia has therefore requested the World Bank for support in improving the maintenance of local roads. This support will focus on the introduction of the concept of microenterprise-based road maintenance, whereby local people are assisted to form microenterprises which are subsequently trained and contracted to carry out basic maintenance activities aimed at preventing damage and slowing down the deterioration of the roads, as well as ensuring continued access. The concept was also piloted by the World Bank in China in 2008. The main conclusion from the first visit to Georgia is that there is definitely scope for the introduction of microenterprise-based routine maintenance of local roads in Georgia, and that no significant obstacles are foreseen. It is also expected that such an introduction would result in a more adequate preventive maintenance of a larger part of the local road network, while at the same time creating significant levels of employment and incomes and introducing entrepreneurship to the rural areas.
