Georgia joined the NDC Partnership in March 2017 and appointed Focal Points from the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture and the Ministry of Finance. The NDC Partnership Support Unit conducted a scoping mission in Tbilisi in May 2018. As a follow-up to the exchanges during the scoping mission, the Government of Georgia is preparing a request for support relating to NDC mainstreaming, cost estimation of implementing mitigation actions, financial planning of climate actions at sub-national level, and other support priorities.
In its NDC, Georgia aims to reduce its projected GHG emissions by 40 percent relative to a business-as-usual scenario; 15 percent of this goal is unconditional, and 25 percent is conditional with subject to financial and technical assistance. Strong mitigation opportunities also exist in the forestry sector. Georgia also seeks to improve its preparedness and adaptive capacity by developing climate resilient practices that reduce vulnerability of highly exposed communities, with a special focus to food security, water security, coastal planning and management, and disaster risk management.
