A "business yard" was arranged in the village of Kvenoban in Chokhatauri municipality


The Guria is one of the three target regions where the "ECO.Georgia" Georgia's forest sector support project is being implemented with the co-financing of the Green Climate Fund, the governments of Germany, Switzerland, and Georgia.

As part of the project, a "business yard" was arranged in Kvenoban village of Chokhatauri municipality. This is the fourth such facility in the region, aimed at serving the local population.

The National Forestry Agency is in charge of supplying the population with firewood that is obtained through organized forest management. The agency has recently begun working on implementing new services that will make it easier for people to purchase firewood and use transportation services.

"The population will be able to purchase firewood in the form of a ready product from business yards. According to the plan, "business yard" will be organized in all municipalities and will be equipped with appropriate human and technical resources. We also purchased special purpose equipment. By the end of the year, a total of 70 "business yards" will be set up across the country," said Kakha Tsertsvadze, Head of the National Forestry Agency.

It should be noted that to introduce a unified timber production and delivery system, 54 "business yards" have been set up as of today. On the initiative of the National Forestry Agency, by the end of 2024, works will be carried out on 16 additional objects.

The National Forestry Agency is one of the main implementers of the project to support the forest sector of Georgia - "ECO.Georgia", co-financed by the Green Climate Fund, the governments of Germany, Switzerland, and Georgia. During the next 4 years, the project covers 8 target municipalities in 3 regions of Georgia. It aims to reduce the pressure on Georgia's forests by implementing all measures necessary for sustainable forest management.
