In close partnership with national and international partners and stakeholders, UNDP helps Georgia introduce its first National Rural Development Strategy and Action Plan, translate best EU experiences and practices into national agenda and enhance relevant national institutions engaged in this process – respective ministries, national agencies, associations and educational bodies.
We believe that effective approach to rural development requires interrelation of social, economic and environmental factors. Effective rural development is a complex area where education, entrepreneurship, infrastructure development, biodiversity protection and climate action – all play a critical role in reviving rural areas.
In 2015, we assisted Ajara Autonomous Republic of Georgia to prepare its first Rural Development Strategy which serves as a pilot endeavor to formulating the policy at the national level. We continue working with the Government of the Ajara Autonomous Republic to help cement the progress through elaborating respective action plan.
