Project Description
The EU-funded project, implemented by the Eurasia Partnership Foundation in partnership with Constitution Research Foundation aims to create and test a sustainable replicable agri-tourism/ecotourism development mechanism that would help rural households in southern regions of Azerbaijan increase their revenue and intensify the connection between urban and rural populations in Azerbaijan. The project promotes conceptual framework exploring how small and medium-size farms can combine agricultural products and tourism into an ecotourism strategy.
Specific Objective
The project has three objectives:

Objective 1: To improve collaboration between local, regional, and national public and
private agri-tourism/ecotourism stakeholders and to promote a strategic and collaborative
approach to the development of Azerbaijan’s agri-tourism/ecotourism sector;

Objective 2: To strengthen capacity of public and private agri-tourism/ecotourism
stakeholders and business advisory service providers;

Objective 3: To increase visibility and outreach of agri-tourism/ecotourism destinations in
southern Azerbaijan for in-county and overseas audiences through investment support and
consumer education.
