70 percent of Georgians are vulnerable, UNDP report says
TBILISI. 22 March 2013 – Social and economic well-being, structural poverty and access to goods and resources in Georgia are examined in the research unveiled by UNDP today.
The research examines the sources of most prevalent vulnerabilities in Georgia and compares the status of disadvantaged groups with the average situation in the country. It reveals that over 70 percent of Georgians are vulnerable in one or another way, and calls for diverse policy measures to respond to their needs.
Speaking at the official launch of the report, Jamie McGoldrick, Head of UNDP in Georgia, said: "This research calls for policy measures to resolve the existing problems and lift different groups out of the prevailing vulnerabilities."
The research sample exceeds 4000 households across Georgia while the disadvantaged groups include the economically vulnerable, persons with disabilities, the displaced, and people living high up in the mountains.
The report results from the insights from a wide range of national and international experts, individuals and organizations. Statistical information is provided by the National Statistics Office of Georgia.
