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 and focus on the climate change strategies and disaster risk reduction.

Our Goals

Our programmes in Georgia promote the use of local energy resources, conservation of biodiversity, rehabilitation of degraded pastures, effective management of water resources, 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. more
