The MSWG will mainly focus on dealing with climate-friendly, climate-resilient agriculture challenges, capacity assessment, elaboration of capacity development programs, land, and other natural resource-related problem advocacy. Moreover, the group will be engaged with mobilizing the public for the sub-grant competition, selecting grant projects, and engaging in the monitoring phase.

The MSWG members are from private, public, and civic sectors interested in the development of the agricultural sector in Marneuli Municipality.

The “PRAISE MARNEULI” project is implemented by CENN with the support of HEKS-EPER. The overall objective of the project is to support income generation opportunities of vulnerable populations in Marneuli Municipality through the development and promotion of environmentally friendly and climate-resilient agricultural (CRA) practices. The action aims to empower smallholders, entrepreneurs, women, youth, and other local actors by introducing climate-resilient agriculture best practices in correlation with the Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA). Within the project, local farmers will have the opportunity to improve their skills, gain knowledge and share this knowledge with other farmers through field trips to regions of Georgia.
