Project aim: This project aims to identify and analyse the various roles played by CSOs in the implementation of the DCFTAs in Georgia, Ukraine, and Moldova. The project will deliver country reports assessing the ability of CSOs to enable local SMEs to benefit from these agreements while also facilitating effective communication between state institutions and SMEs.

The final report will draw a comparative assessment across the three DCFTA states, thus bringing to light good practices and limitations of CSO engagement in the implementation of the DCFTAs in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine
