15.06.2016 - 30.11.2020

Identifying where animals have come from and recording information about their health is essential in modern agriculture to prevent the spread of diseases and stop products from diseased animals reaching the market. A system to ensure traceability will help to improve the incomes of farmers in the South Caucasus by increasing both herd productivity and the producers’ access to markets.

Market Alliances in the Lesser Caucasus Region of Georgia

01.03.2014 - 30.06.2017

In the regions of Samtskhe-Javakheti, Kvemo Kartli and Adjara in southern Georgia, many family farms have only small numbers of livestock and operate at a subsistence level that merely enables them to get by. This project aims to help these farmers increase their income, not only by improving their productivity but also by providing them with better access to the meat and milk markets. This involves integrating the different elements of the production chain from farmers to processing companies, wholesalers and service providers such as veterinary surgeons, through to the consumers.

01.01.2013 - 31.12.2018

Georgia’s vocational education and training (VET) system does not correspond to the needs of the transition to a market economy which the government has sought to bring about since the country gained its independence. The SDC is helping the Georgian government to develop a more modern VET system that integrates theory and practice and allows a long-term increase in farm productivity and rural incomes.

Market Alliances Caucasus Programme in Georgia

01.04.2017 - 31.03.2021

Livestock farming is the main economic activity for the majority of poor households in the rural areas of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Through better access to services, inputs and diversified markets, farmers are expected to substantially improve their livelihood. Strengthening regional links and enhancing access to regional markets of live animals and animal products will make the livestock sector more profitable and increase competitiveness of the sector, contributing in turn to higher incomes of farmers and employment opportunities in rural areas.


Market Opportunities for Livelihood Improvement in Kakheti, Georgia

01.12.2015 - 30.11.2018

Livestock farming is the main economic activity for the majority of poor households in the Kakheti region of Georgia. Through better access to markets, services and inputs for the dairy and meat value chains, target farmers will substantially improve their income. By the end of the project phase 27’000 households will have benefitted directly from improved access to markets, services, inputs, a more conducive operating environment and better protection from natural disasters. 


Regional and Municipal Infrastructure Development in Georgia

10.04.2014 - 31.05.2019

The project will increase human and institutional capacities of all municipalities in Georgia (except the capital city Tbilisi). lt will enable them to perform independently the core three functions for decentralised delivery of basic infrastructure services, i. e. Project Cycle Management, Financial Management and Asset Management. Such a decentralized System will enable the Government to better respond to population needs at local level.



Fostering Local and Regional Development in Georgia

15.12.2012 - 31.07.2017

The strengthening of local and regional governance Systems through capacity building, mobilization of local human resources and better coordination of public Investments is expected to improve inclusive development of rural regions of Georgia. This will contribute to the transition from the inherited highly centralized Soviet administration to a decentralized System and to reduce the significant economic divide between the urban and rural population.


Regional Art and Culture Programme in the South Caucasus

01.10.2012 - 30.06.2017

The present project promotes contemporary arts as an open and interactive platform that can display new perspectives and social mechanisms to the audience, and that can support and stimulate South Caucasian artists. It will be implemented by Georgian and international organizations and focuses on contemporary dance and experimental arts; small grants; arts for marginalised communities; and capacity building of arts and culture institutions.


Rural Economic Development in the Southern Regions of Georgia

01.05.2012 - 31.10.2017

The Rural Economic Development Programme aims at contributing to inclusive and sustainable economic growth in the regions of Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kvemo Kartli in the South of Georgia. It will support relevant market actors in the potato and dairy value chains to get access to investment funds and to adopt efficient production, storage and processing technologies, thereby reducing production costs, increasing capacities and eventually getting better access to profitable markets. All this shall result in higher incomes and improved living conditions for men and women.
