USAID/PROLoG Supports Intensive NGO Training on Regulatory Impact Assessments

01 March 2018 Dimitri Dzagnidze explaining the steps of conducting a RIA

From February 9-11, in the framework of its USAID-funded EWMI/PROLoG grant, Free University conducted an intensive training on Regulatory Impact Assessments (RIAs) for NGO representatives. A RIA is a systemic approach to critically assess the positive and negative effects of existing and/or proposed regulations and possible alternatives. An initial training took place in October 2017, when participants were given a general overview of the essence of RIA and its tools. During that initial training participants selected the “Law on an Independent Investigation Mechanism” to be used as the basis for a model RIA during the February 2018 in-depth training. The in-depth training was conducted by a lawyer, Dimitri Dzagnidze, and an economist, Lali Ghoghoberidze, who prepared Guidelines and a model RIA on the selected law, as well as provided detailed explanations about the planning and conducting RIA. They discussed the steps for conducting a RIA, including: problem definition, definition of alternatives, data collection, methodologies for assessment, and monitoring and evaluation. The training was attended by eight NGO representatives who are members of Coalition for an Independent and Transparent Judiciary.
