IFAD strategy in Georgia
Since 1997 IFAD has invested US$51.6 million in financing five programmes and projects for a total value of US$118.9 million. The primary goal of IFAD's strategy in Georgia, which is fully aligned with the government's strategies, is to reduce rural poverty and improve rural people's living conditions and livelihoods by:
- promoting investments by smallholder farmers and agribusiness to foster competitive climate-smart value chains
- improving access for farmers and agribusinesses to key markets (particularly through better access to credit, savings, leasing and insurance products
- promoting financially and environmentally sustainable rural economic infrastructure to improve productivity, post-harvest management and the resilience of smallholder producers.
