EU and FAO are going to grant 1 million USD as the financial support to small farmers of Georgia (Caucasus) who had suffered due to the pandemic of COVID. This grant will be divided between farmers of 22 municipalities for drip irrigation systems. “Thanks to their installation, the crop of vegetables will grow. Food safety is the key for stability in these troublesome times,” stated Karl Khartsell, EU Ambassador to Georgia.
EU sponsors the agriculture and rural development of Georgia in the frame of ENPARD. The main goal of this program with total budget of 179.5 million euro is to reduce poverty in rural Georgia.
