Introduction

  • 258 000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are settled in Georgia in collective centres and private accommodation

  • State authorities are unable to provide vulnerable IDPs with effective, sufficient

  • and tailor-made public services (health, education, employment)

  • 82,7% of IDP households class their economic situation as “hard”, “very hard” or “extremely hard” (World Bank, Georgia Poverty Assessment, April 2009)
