Since 1997 IFAD, has invested a total of US$51.6 million in financing five programmes and projects for a total value of US$113.8 million.
The primary goal of IFAD's strategy in Georgia, which is fully aligned with the government's Economic and Sustainable Development, and Poverty Reduction Strategies, is to reduce rural poverty and improve rural people's living conditions and livelihoods, by:
- Improving farmers' productive capacity
- Improving producers' access to markets and increasing their share of the market value of their products
- Empowering poor rural people, particularly women, by ensuring participation and ownership and by strengthening farmers' and community organizations through training and extension
- Promoting the conservation of natural resources.
