UNDP and the Global Environment Facility assist Georgia to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and explore local resources of renewable energy.
The present initiative facilitates a shift from fossil to biomass fuels, and promotes the production and utilization of biomass in the municipal sector of Georgia.
