Continuous improvement of Georgia’s agriculture, agrifood systems, rural livelihoods, export opportunities, and food safety – responding to climate change, land degradation, biodiversity, and other environmental issues – are among the priorities set out in a new agreement of FAO and Georgia.

Minister of Environmental Protection and Agriculture Otar Shamugia, together with Raimund Jehle, FAO Representative in Georgia, signed the FAO Country Programming Framework, shaping the development of Georgia’s agrifood systems for the period 2021–2025 and its significant contribution to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within FAO’s new Strategic Framework 2022–2031.

The war in Ukraine is affecting millions of people and forcing massive population displacement. The destruction or damage to agricultural infrastructure and markets, and the disruption of food supply chains is threatening the food security of already vulnerable populations. Agriculture-based livelihoods, a key source of income for 30 percent of the population, are severely impacted. While many Ukrainians are fleeing their communities and/or the country, a significant proportion of the population is staying, facing extreme challenges and thus requiring multisectoral humanitarian assistance. Key emergency agricultural interventions to smallholder producers, who play a critical role in contributing to the country’s food security, helps sustain lives and livelihoods.
