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.
