June 2, 2017

On 30 May, two new EU-funded rural development projects in the Keda and Khulo municipalities will be officially introduced at the Rural Development Council meeting in Batumi. The event, which is part of the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD), will bring together over 50 representatives of rural communities, municipal authorities, government and civil society.

The EU-supported projects “Promotion of Rural Development and Diversification in Khulo Municipality” and “Optimising the Potential of Local Assets for Rural Development of Keda Municipality” will promote a bottom-up, inclusive rural development approach that fully engages all communities in the above mentioned municipalities. The goal of the projects is to contribute to the reduction of poverty by supporting the improvement of community members’ employment and income opportunities.

The EU-funded ENPARD programme has been operating in Georgia since 2013. The main goal of ENPARD is to reduce rural poverty in Georgia by offering support to rural development and agriculture. Programme assistance is provided to the government and NGOs working directly with communities on the ground.
