Environment and Energy

UNDP assists Georgia to expand access to green solutions and make environmental issues an integral part of development. We promote sustainable environmental management, Climate Action and disaster risk reduction.

Our Goals

UNDP’s programmes in Georgia cover key areas of environment protection and disaster management. We promote the use of local energy resources, conservation of biodiversity, rehabilitation of degraded pastures, effective management of water resources, sustainable urban development and gradual elimination of harmful substances from the environment. We also assist in adopting national strategies to counter the risk of natural and man-made disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, landslides, and urban and technological disasters. UNDP’s partnership with the Government, local authorities, research institutions and communities allows us to assist in the adoption of sustainable policies, carry out comprehensive research and implement a range of green initiatives in every region of Georgia. more
