image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Georgia

This series assists countries to improve their environmental policies by making concrete recommendations for better policy design and implementation. It helps integrate environmental policies into sector-specific policies such as those in agriculture, energy, transport and health. The present publication contains the third Environmental Performance Review of Georgia. The review takes stock of the progress made by Georgia in the management of its environment since the country was reviewed in 2010 for the second time. It assesses the implementation of the recommendations contained in the second review. It also discusses issues on air protection, water management, including protection of the Black Sea, waste management, biodiversity, forests and protected areas, energy, industry, agriculture, transport, forestry, tourism, health and risk management of natural and technological/anthropogenic hazards.



Air protection

Since 2008, the reported level of total emissions from all sources has fluctuated somewhat (table 3.1). The emission data are based on the national report to the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP). These data are in turn based on emission reports by the operators of installations. Emissions of TSPs decreased after 2008 due to changes in industrial activities, but then started to increase from 2009. This is probably caused by the growth of the national economy.
