Georgia

The situation in Abkhazia remains unresolved, exacerbating tensions between the local population.

Country Overview

Poverty has been reduced by almost half in the last ten years, athough large socioeconomic inequalities remain among the population of Georgia. Likewise, the situation in Abkhazia remains unresolved and impedes significant improvements in the economic situation in the region.

What we are doing

Action Against Hunger has been present in Georgia since 1994 and we have focused efforts on:

  • Our long-term food security programs
  • Identifying income-generating activities and providing training to the most vulnerable families 
  • Water, sanitation and hygiene programmes

In 2017, we established rural employment and development projects, offering technical assistance to cooperatives through vocational training and technical and financial advice. In Georgia, we worked with the local vulnerable population, minorities and internally displaced people. We are also working on a response to mitigate the effects of a plague that affected both zones, Georgia and Abkhazia, significantly harming rural people’s livelihoods.
