Development Solutions for Georgia’s Mountains
TBILISI. 25 April 2014 – The Government of Georgia joins hands with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) to promote development in the mountainous regions of Georgia.
On 24 April 2014, Government officials, heads of local administrations, experts and representatives of international organizations got together at a workshop to discuss the strategies and policies that can boost development in the mountainous areas and address the immediate problems of the local residents.
The workshop participants agreed that the establishment of a State Commission on Mountainous Regions’ Development will push forward the process of designing strategic documents and legislation. UNDP, SDC and ADA reiterated their commitment to assist the Government in these efforts.
The research commissioned by UNDP in 2013 shows that 73 percent of the families living in the mountainous areas of Georgia are vulnerable and the socio-economic and demographic development trends are highly negative. The joint initiative of the UNDP, SDC, ADA and the Government addresses these problems and assists in creating sustainable development solutions for the mountainous regions of Georgia.
