A call for applications for agribusiness support has been announced within the framework of the EU Green Agriculture Initiative in Armenia (EU-GAIA) project.
Farmers, producers, processors can participate in the call for applications.
It consists of the following components:
The support for small scale agribusinesses will be provided through agricultural production machinery and equipment, post-harvest and processing equipment and some infrastructural inputs. Only fixed assets will be provided, not monetary grants.
Preference will be given to agribusinesses run by women as well as young people and vulnerable groups.
The EU’s Green Agriculture Initiative in Armenia (EU-GAIA) is funded by the European Union (EUR 9.7 million) and co-funded by Austrian Development Cooperation (EUR 2 million). The project is implemented by the Austrian Development Agency and the United Nations Development Programme in Armenia. The Government counterpart of the project is the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Armenia. The EU-GAIA project supports the development of sustainable, inclusive, innovative and market-based agribusiness particularly in the northern regions of Armenia – Shirak, Lori and Tavush. The project will be implemented over the course of three years.
