A grant financing agreement worth €7.15 million was signed between the French Development Agency (AFD), the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia, and the French Embassy, in the presence of Carl Hartzell, the EU Ambassador to Georgia.

This grant agreement will support an AFD credit line with a total allocation of €65 million, which aims at rehabilitating, reconstructing, and expanding the water supply and sanitation infrastructure, and improving related services in the municipality of Khashuri.

Currently, water is only supplied in Khashuri and the neighbouring settlements for a few hours per day, while wastewater is discharged without treatment into a transboundary river, negatively affecting the environment, local livelihoods and the health of populations.
