The funding is provided by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), as assistance promoting cooperation and integration between the EU and its partners. The AAP adopted on July 13 consists of four main actions:support to the criminal justice sector; support to conflict affected/displaced population and host communities; framework programme in support of EU-Georgia agreements; and support to conflict settlement.

According to the commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle “Georgia has already made significant progress in reforming its criminal justice system and in assisting its internally displaced populations,” but more still needs to be done and the AAP will provide further assistance to help achieve these objectives.
