EU, UNDP assist agriculture development in Ajara
TBILISI. 21 May 2013 – The assistance to small farmers in Ajara will be in focus of a € 3.3 million programme jointly funded by the European Union and the Ajara Autonomous Republic Government, and implemented by the UNDP in Georgia.
The three-year initiative will closely work with the Government of Ajara Autonomous Republic and the Ajara Agroservice Centre to increase efficiency of farming, establish and strengthen small farmers which may become a backbone of the agriculture sector, and to enhance institutional development of the Ajara Ministry of Agriculture.
The initiative is the part of the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD) under which the European Union assists inclusive growth and stability in its Neighbourhood, and promotes agriculture as a foundation for food security, sustainable production and rural employment.
The ENPARD was introduced in Georgia in 2013 with a € 40 million programme which aims to boost the production of food and to reduce rural poverty.
