The USAID Agriculture Program is a five-year, USAID-funded program implemented by CNFA in Georgia. The goal of the USAID Agriculture Program is to accelerate growth of agricultural sub-sectors that demonstrate strong potential to create jobs and increase micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) revenues. In support of this agenda, the USAID Agriculture Program plans to deliver firm-level investment and tailor-made technical assistance to entrepreneurial, market-driven enterprises, production clusters and supporting associations and service/information/extension providers to foster inclusive and sustainable market systems development.
The USAID Agriculture Program also provides competitive cost-shared grants and technical assistance to address identified gaps in targeted value chains (VCs) that will result in the improved productivity and productive capacity of MSMEs, strengthened value chain linkages, increased access to markets, and improved capacity of MSMEs, cooperatives, associations and service/information/extension providers.
As part of these endeavors, the USAID Agriculture Program in cooperation with Enterprise Georgia and the Rural Development Agency (RDA) would like to better connect Georgian producers of prioritized commodities with qualified buyers in Germany as well as Gulf states including Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
