Summary

Georgia is committed to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement on Climate Change since signing the documents in 2015. The country has already developed its National Strategy on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) 2017-2020 to increase efficiency of its response to the possible threats. UNDP will continue assistance to strengthen national capacities in adapting to climate change.  

Activities

With funds from the Swiss Cooperation Office (SCO) in the South Caucasus, UNDP assists the Government of Georgia to enhance its disaster risk reduction capacities focusing on hazard mapping and application of disaster damage/loss assessment methodology. The initiative focuses on obtaining important baseline information on state of the art in disaster risk reduction and management practices to create a functional disaster risk reduction system in Georgia.
