Rural Development for Sustainable Growth in the Tetritskaro Municipality
About the Project
The European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD II) in Georgia chose RDFG to implement a four-year €2.4 million project to aid the Tetritskaro community. This long-term project, “Rural Development for Sustainable Growth of Tetritskaro Municipality,” will improve the quality of life in Tetritskaro using innovative social-economic models.
ENPARD II uses a LEADER approach to economic development. Fundamentally, it is the energy and resources of the local people that contribute to the rural development process by forming partnerships at a sub-regional level between the public, private and civil sectors. The LEADER approach is associated with local empowerment through local strategy development and resource allocation. The main tool for the application of the LEADER approach to area development and involving local representatives in decision-making is the Local Action Group (LAG).
