UNDP assists Georgia in addressing global environmental challenges as well as meeting obligations under the UN conventions. Being a party to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Georgia is responsible for performing and submitting its National Communications - comprehensive documents that update the information over the national context, including greenhouse gas inventories, vulnerabilities to climate change, and mitigation and adaptation measures.
