Improved Resilience of Communities to Climate Risks
The project funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is a part of a larger programme funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), Governments of Georgia, Switzerland and Sweden. The project aims to reduce the exposure of Georgia’s communities, livelihoods and infrastructure to climate-induced natural hazards.
The project intends to improve the resilience of communities through implementing a community-based early warning system and priority risk reduction actions, as complementary measures to the overall programme.
