The “Rural Economic Development-New Economic Opportunities” program (RED-NEO) is being implemented by CARD with the Armenian Women for Health and Healthy Environment NGO, AM Partners Consulting and Hicks, Burnham and Williams LLC.

RED-NEO program builds upon current and previous projects, initiatives and activities that the government of Armenia, the U.S. government and USAID, and other donor and non-governmental organizations are implementing to address the economic challenges in rural Armenia.

RED-NEO activities promote inclusive, sustainable economic security and economic growth by supporting at least 100 businesses in at least 60 communities. The program accelerates the growth of small- and medium-sized enterprises (including farms and cooperatives) in the regions; facilitates market linkages between producers and buyers; and establishes networks to promote local economic development. It fosters the development of a competitive agriculture sector by improving the performance of rural businesses and cooperatives, and their ability to meet quality standards.
