Professional education boosts regional development in Georgia
AKHMETA. September 2011 - Roin Terterashvili, farmer, sees better prospects for his small cow farm with a new milk processing plant opened in his mountainous region. Roin is getting more cows and plans to open a milk collecting facility that will serve small farmers from the nearby villages.
Roin’s home village is in Pankisi – a mountainous region in north-east Georgia. High level of rural poverty and unemployment makes this agriculture area one of the poorest in Georgia.
UNDP works in the region since 2010 to create more economic and social opportunities for local residents.
