Improving the functioning of agri-food value chains in the South Caucasus region

Thematic complex:
Securing the world’s food supply and competitive supply chains
Project duration:
01.01.2024 - 31.12.2024
Investigated countries:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova

Agriculture in the South Caucasus (SC) is the source of livelihood for the majority of the rural population and significantly contributes to food security. Despite the transformation of their agricultural value chains after the independence, key challenges remain at different stages of agri-food value chains. The latter became most apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic and, recently, during Russia’s war in Ukraine, as the South Caucasian economies heavily depend on trade with Russia and Ukraine. Against this background, this project aims to strengthen international and interdisciplinary networking and cooperation between universities and scientists in the SC region and the participating EU countries to discuss and understand how emerging geopolitical tensions have distracted the functioning of the SC agri-food supply chains. Within the project we organize an international three-day workshop particularly seeking to promote dialogue and knowledge transfer between academia, policy, agribusiness, and civil society concerned with agri-food supply chains in the Southern Caucasus region.
