Chokhatauri Municipality Towards a Sustainable Energy Future

Project Description
The project aims to improve the local ecosystem for an increased share of renewable energy sources (RES) and energy efficient (EE) packages to be used by the local self-government, private sector and civil society orგanizations (CSOs) in Chokhatauri municipality.

The project is based on two priorities: improvement of the local infrastructure and services of the LSG in order to enhance the residential comfort level and investment attractiveness of Chokhatauri and promotion of the public participation, inclusive decision-making and consultative processes to achieve higher quality and accountability of the municipal services.
