Immediate Response to 2012 Natural Disaster in Georgia
Three regions of Georgia – Kakheti, Mtskheta-Mtianeti and Samtskhe-Javakheti, were heavily damaged in a hailstorm in July 2012. The government of Georgia approached UNDP and World Bank for technical assistance in conducting a thorough recovery needs assessment and developing an integrated recovery framework.
What We Do
A Joint Needs Assessment was conducted immediately after hailstorm of July 2012. Report identified short, mid and long-term needs of the affected regions and laid foundation to a draft recovery framework. In December 2012, UNDP in partnership with the National Environmental Agency of Georgia, initiated works for hazard mapping of Telavi – the biggest city in the Kakheti region, as the most affected urban area.
UNDP provided rapid assistance to the affected villages to help farmers take care of their damaged vineyards and fruit gardens.
