EU helps to protect 34,000 hectares of forest in Georgia

September 23, 2021

The EU and UNDP will assist the Agency of Protected Areas in Georgia to improve the management of 34,000 hectares of forests in the Algeti, Javakheti and Lagodekhi protected areas.

As part of this assistance, the EU and UNDP will help develop forest management plans, train and equip rangers, establish ecotourism services, and create a multi-language mobile application to provide tourists with information about all protected areas in Georgia.

The 14-month project draws on resources under the EU-funded European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD) programme, which is assisting Georgia to reform and modernise its national approach to rural development.
