UN Women Country Office in Georgia has been implementing its Strategic Note (2021-2025), under which one of the priority areas is women’s economic empowerment (WEE), with a specific focus on women living in rural areas and on marginalised women with multiple disadvantages. With the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Austrian Development Agency, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, UN Women implements a portfolio of projects aiming to increase economic security and improve access to livelihood and development opportunities for women, particularly the poorest and most excluded.
To achieve this goal, the projects work directly with women entrepreneurs, employers and associations, civil society and the media, and researchers and policy makers.
