The  United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Global Environment Facility (GEF) assist the Government of Georgia to prepare the country's Second Biennial Update Report (SBUR) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Fourth National Communication and Second Biennial Update Report (FNC) to the UNFCCC, in accordance with the country’s commitments as a non-Annex 1 Party of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Georgia’s Second Biennial Update Report and its Fourth National Communication will be built on the findings and recommendations of the Third National Communication, the First Biennial Update Report as well as the outcomes of other ongoing complementary projects in the country.

Both reports will be submitted to the UNFCCC Secretariat by 2019 and 2021 respectively.

The preparation of the FNC/SBUR reports will help to better understand where the country contributes the most to GHG and the most vulnerable areas of country’s life affected by the climate change. Thus, the country will be in a better position to devise and implement appropriate measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change, including accessing finance and appropriate technology transfer in line with the national policy objectives and guiding principles.


  • Support the Government of Georgia to mainstream and integrate climate change considerations into development strategies and sector-based policy frameworks, through ensuring continuity of the institutional and technical capacity building, partly initiated and consequently sustained by reporting instruments under the UNFCCC; and ensuring a regular mechanism of national monitoring, reporting and verification, and move towards a low-carbon and climate resilience development pathway;
  • Assist the country in the preparation and submission of its Second Biennial Update Report and the Fourth National Communication to the UNFCCC for the fulfilment of its obligations to the Convention.
