    Enhancing agricultural development in Georgia - GCP/GEO/001/EC 2017
    Also available in:

    Agriculture has always been an important part of the economy of Georgia. However, until quite recently the agriculture sector has been neglected, and this has deepened chronic problems, leading to very low productivity and underutilization of resources. Since 2012, the Government has been taking steps towards promoting agricultural development, and alleviating rural poverty through the implementation of the Strategy for Agricultural Development in Georgia. One of the prerequisites to improving the competitiveness of the agriculture sector is to enhance policy-making and develop the capacities of the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and its agencies.

The two year Equal Access of IDPs to Economic Opportunities project was funded by the EU and implemented by FAO in cooperation with UN Women, and focused on developing livelihoods of the most vulnerable groups of IDPs, namely single parents with minors, households with members with disabilities, and households led by youths and the elderly.  The project provided training and over GEL 4 million to help these families undertake investments in mechanization, orchards, vineyards, honey and dairy productions.  In total, 830 IDP households across Georgia benefitted from the project.  3.
