Rural Economy

We’re working to achieve sustainable and innovative agricultural practices to ensure development in all districts...

Image

The rural economy faces issues such as climate change, natural resource pollution, lack of food security and limited job opportunities. 33% of İzmir is agricultural land, and it is vital that these issues are resolved. A holistic and sustainable development approach is necessary to reduce development disparity between the ditricts of İzmir.

In this context, we prioritize ensuring safe food production in agriculture, spreading innovative, high value added and sustainable production practices and technology use as well as diversifying non-agricultural job opportunities in rural areas

KAPRA Project

With the financial support of the Japan Global Facility for Disaster Risk Reduction and Recovery Fund (GFDRR) managed by the World Bank, the project was initiated as a study to conduct risk analysis of basic agricultural products produced in Küçük Menderes Basin and to develop adaptation strategies. The aim of this study, which the Agency is the beneficiary of the project, is to determine the impact of climate change on agricultural activities in Küçük Menderes Basin, to develop economic, environmental and social solution proposals for the sustainability of basic agricultural activities in the region in the light of various climate change scenarios, as well as supporting the economic and social development of the region.

Within the scope of the project, the conceptual and methodological framework of the basic agricultural produce / production was developed at the scale of Küçük Menderes Basin. The main agricultural produce / production types ointhe basin were determined; risks were evaluated in the value chains for the identified types. And also sudies were carried out to develop adaptation strategies and solutions for these risks. Within the scope of the project, meetings were held in order to get the opinions of the relevant institutions and organizations and the main actors. On March 29, 2018, all relevant actors came together at the Risk Analysis Project for Critical Agricultural Products in the Küçük Menderes Basin Workshop held in Torbalı and evaluated the Project. The final report of the KAPRA Project, the implementation period of which ended in June, is planned to be completed in the first half of 2019.
