The Grassroots Human Security Program (GGP) is one of the grant schemes of the Embassy of Japan in Georgia, oriented towards providing support to the grassroots actors, for the promotion of Basic Human Needs and Human Security in Georgia. This involves, but is not limited to the actions, which aim to mitigate threats to human survival, human life, human dignity, as well as the actions aimed to build up the capacities of individuals and communities.
Responding to the Needs of Population of Georgia:
Representing the goodwill of the ordinary Japanese people, the Embassy of Japan strives to provide support in the sectors, considered most essential by the population of Georgia itself. Vast majority of the reputable local and international research reflects that the population of Georgia considers socio-economic problems as the most acute national issues, along with the occupation of its territories. Thus, in its GGP program, the Embassy strives to emphasize the projects, which aim to resolve those problems most effectively and efficiently.
Building Upon the New Development and Opportunities for Georgia:
Having signed the Association Agreement and the accompanying Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (AA and DCFTA) with the EU, Georgia gained access to the broad economic development opportunities provided by the EU market. Full enjoyment of this opportunity, however, is dependent on the proper infrastructure and logistics system in Georgia, allowing the producers to develop the products, competitive for the EU market. The GGP program strives to support the population in developing such essential infrastructure for the economic development of Georgia.
Multiplier Effects: Effective Strategies for Most Efficient and Effective Usage of Limited Resources:
However, as every other resource – the GGP funding has its limitations, making it especially necessary for the applicants to develop project strategies that can achieve those important objectives most effectively and efficiently. Thus, the Embassy is looking for the project proposals with strong multiplier effects, which can utilize the minimal resources and turn them into powerful capabilities. Some of the successful examples of the GGP are arrangement of the irrigation system for the rural areas, benefiting thousands of individuals (allowing them to upscale their local production); construction of the poultry, benefiting hundreds of farmers and creating the local source of income for families.
