The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) implements the regional project “Aid for Trade in Central Asia”, in accordance with Finland’s development policy and UNDP’s development concept, contributing to the inclusive growth of the green economy by promoting trade and increasing national competitiveness and sustainable development, helping poor and disadvantaged communities to benefit from trade. In this regard, the UNDP Aid for Trade project supports target countries and governments in the transition to high-quality products that make it easier for producers to enter markets (low production volumes) and positively impact on equity (affordable prices). Within the framework of this project, for the implementation of the sub-project “Provision of trainings and consulting services to small and medium-sized businesses and farmers” UNDP attracted the International Charitable Public Organization “Jovid”. The 5-month sub-project started in September 2021 and will work in the following target areas:

for mung bean – Hamadoni and Shaartuz districts

for honey – the districts of Rasht, Tajikabad, Sangvor and Lyakhsh

for peanuts – Matcha district

for apricot – Isfara district

It is expected that, as a minimum, the following results will be achieved as a result of the implementation of this sub-project:

  1. At least 100 farmers/beekeepers (at least 50% of them are women) trained and improved their knowledge and skills on production of target products (mung beans, peanuts, apricots and honey) according to the abovementioned training topics (see Table 1);
  2. Employees of 13 selected SMEs and at least 30 farmers / beekeepers (see Table 2) improved their knowledge on using online tools to promote products through online resources;

  1. The regular monitoring and assessment of the impact of the services provided, assessment of the level of knowledge increase and satisfaction of target groups with the received consultations / knowledge before and after the provision of consulting services / trainings conducted;
  2. Post-monitoring of the use and impact of the received knowledge on the production activities of the target group (SMEs, farmers and beekeepers), including an analysis of the impact of the received knowledge on the main production and trade capacity indicators (volume of production, yields, volume of sales/exports (including from the sale through the use of marketplaces), the number of employees and jobs created, etc.) conducted, the necessary information and data collected and submitted to UNDP;
  3. The articles, posts, video spots, TV broadcasts about conducted activities and results achieved prepared and posted/published/broadcasted and the copies provided to UNDP;;
