Women in the Rural Economy in Georgia

Women in the Rural Economy in Georgia cover

Women living in rural areas of Georgia constitute more than a half of the rural population, and many of them neither work nor seek employment, while many others are vulnerably employed. This brief reviews economic activity of rural women and the reasons for the existing employment structure, while proposing some strategies to raise women’s economic activity in rural Georgia.

This brief was developed by UN Women Georgia Country Office in the framework of the UN Women projects “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
