HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Good governance» in the South Caucasus

In the South Caucasus HEKS/EPER is active in Georgia and Armenia. It strives to foster peaceful coexistence and improve living conditions in rural areas through income-generating activities and by strengthening civil society. To boost their crop yields and incomes, smallholders broaden their knowledge of organic farming and improve their access to infrastructure, micro-credit and markets. Besides, to strengthen social cohesion, HEKS/EPER supports its partner organizations in building a network which, in collaboration with opinion leaders, media and civil society organizations, provides members with unbiased information about politics, society and the ongoing conflicts in the South Caucasus.

A properly functioning State is transparent and accountable in that it ensures legal certainty, peace, human rights and participation and creates economic and social conditions that ensure the population's well-being. HEKS/EPER and its partner organizations strive to ensure that civil society is involved in economic and political processes – more specifically also minorities and other communities on the fringes of society, as inclusive governance fosters stability and sustainability.
