Wishing everyone a wonderful 2017!
Dear Friends !!!
One of main goals for Azerbaijan today is to remove economic dependence on oil and assure expansion of economic development to rural areas. Despite being the third biggest sphere in Azerbaijani economy after oil and industry, agriculture has the largest share in employment (40% of total employed population works in agriculture and only 1% in oil sector).
So GABA’s past project experience and history of project implementation success make it uniquely qualified to implement a project in the field of agriculture. In just the past 17 years, GABA has implemented more than 50 for long-and short-term projects in the field of agriculture.
Our goal is to play an active role in fostering excellence, cooperation and interaction with international partners and supporters. This has helped us to disperse our messages to a much wider audience and also build on both the credibility of IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) and numerous international organizations such as EU, USAID, UN FAO, GIZ etc.
