The main goal of the project is to improve the protection and management of cultural heritage in Tbilisi and increase transparency and accountability of the NNLP "Tbilisi Development Fund", as well as to strengthen the instruments for protection of cultural heritage in the management process of Tbilisi and promote the implementation of the rehabilitation process with a proper methodology. In order to achieve the aim, GYLA and Tiflis Hamkari will monitor and evaluate the activities of the Fund. Based on the monitoring results, specific recommendations will be prepared and advocated to decision makers. In order to gain public interest and support, GYLA and Tiflis Hamkari will conduct intensive publicity campaigns.
