Environmental Performance Reviews promote sustainable development throughout Europe. They present detailed studies on environmental position of each country and examine the framework for environmental policy and management.



Policy, legal and institutional framework and sectoral integration

Since it proclaimed its independence from the former Soviet Union on 9 April 1991, Georgia has been taking steps to establish a legislative system to match the changed political conditions and emerging problems, including environmental ones. Among the most serious of these are: a dangerous increase in air pollution, particularly in cities; water pollution, especially from untreated waste-water discharges, and a degradation of the drinking water-supply sources; waste caused by poor waste and hazardous chemical management; land degradation; and degradation of the Black Sea owing to pollution.
