Practice of agricultural land conversion in Georgia

  • Kety Gujaraidze

Georgian legislation sets some conditions for conversion of agriculture lands for non-agriculture uses, i.e. for changing the status of agriculture land to non-agriculture. In 2013, the parliament introduced additional condition, according to which conversion of agricultural land was allowed only for “urgent public purpose”. In this study, at first, legal framework on land conversion is discussed briefly. Then, the practice of land conversion during 2013-2015 is reviewed in detail.
