At a Glance

The Europe and Eurasia Regional Mission serves Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Serbia.

Georgia is rich in natural resources and highly dependent on tourism, both of which are threatened by climate variability and change. Climate change is expected to exacerbate the frequency, intensity, and severity of droughts, floods, landslides, and other natural disasters. Rising temperatures and unpredictable seasonal rains have negative implications for Georgia’s agriculture sector. Advances in energy production are at risk from climate impacts such as reduced river flows that impede hydropower productivity and landslides that disrupt supply. The energy sector was responsible for most of the greenhouse gas emissions, followed by land-use change and forestry, waste, agriculture, and industrial processes.
