ENPARD-4: Supporting Rural Development in Georgia
The project is part of the EU-supported European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD) aimed at strengthening inclusive and sustainable growth and enhancing the well-being of people and communities living in Georgia’s rural areas.
The fourth phase of this complex initiative is focused on reviving rural areas, promoting balanced and inclusive multisectoral development, and supporting the structural transformation of the economic and social fabric of rural communities in four regions of Georgia – Kakheti, Imereti, Racha-Lechkhumi & Kvemo Svaneti and Guria.
The three-year project (2023-2025) is funded by the European Union (US$2,398,720.69 / EUR2,250,000.00) with contributions from Estonia (US$42,643.92 / EUR40,000.00) and UNDP (US$149,786.78 / EUR 140,500.00).
What we do
The project tackles three areas of rural development:
- Improved rural development governance system for integrated and effective policy development and implementation.
- Improved rural services and infrastructure; women empowerment; and inclusive growth.
- Sustainable use of forest resources; improved environmental protection; and accelerated climate action.
The project is implemented in close partnership with Georgia’s Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, the Rural Development Agency, the Inter-Agency Coordination Council for Rural Development, Local Action Groups, local authorities, civil society organizations and the private sector.
