Economic Development

Sustainable growth and democratic reforms are in focus of UNDP assistance to economic development of Georgia. We work closely with the Government, private sector and local communities to ensure that the benefits of economic growth reach those who still live in poverty.

Our Goals

We promote professional education tailored to the labour market needs, and assist local development and small businesses. Our programmes in many regions of Georgia help to boost agriculture and provide farmers with better access to knowledge, training and up-to-date agriculture technologies. We also assist international and regional trade as one of the instruments of human development and promote a concept of Green Economy as an alternative vision for growth. more

Assistance to farmers

More than 30 villages in Kakheti, east Georgia, received assistance from UNDP to overcome the impact of a hailstorm in July 2012. Agriculture consultants and plant treatment professionals helped farmers to take care of damaged vineyards and fruit gardens. Photo: David Khizanishvili/UNDP
