The Programme in Georgia supports the Government’s efforts to develop the smallholder agricultural sector, which has a fundamental role to play in reducing poverty and food insecurity in rural areas.
Poverty is a main cause of food insecurity. There has been massive progress in reducing poverty in the last decade. However, 24 percent of the population was still living in poverty in 2007 and the global economic crisis is threatening progress.
The Programme is implemented together with the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and the National Statistics Service, GeoStat.
The Georgia country programme operates as part of the regional EC/FAO Programme on information systems to improve food security decision-making in the European Neighborhood Policy East Area.
