Scaling-up Multi-Hazard Early Warning System and the Use of Climate Information in Georgia

Scaling-up Multi-Hazard Early Warning System and the Use of Climate Information in Georgia

Reducing the climate risk to Georgia's communities by supporting infrastructure and their livelihoods.

Georgia faces climate change-related risks including landslides, mudflows, erosion, avalanches, floods, drought, and strong winds. These are increasing in frequency, intensity and geographical spread due to climate change. Subsequently, the need for robust climate information and early warning has become a priority in managing risk to Georgia's sustainable development.

The expansion of a hydro-meteorological observation network and modelling capacities will provide reliable information on climate-induced hazards, vulnerability and risks. Specifically, the scaling up of Georgia's Multi-Hazard Early Warning System will improve community resilience. Robust climate information has been shown to reduce considerable costs.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 7 years.
