Georgia: National disaster risk reduction strategy 2017-2020

This is the first National Disaster Risk Reduction Strategy (the National DRR Strategy) adopted by the Government of Georgia. The goal of the Strategy is to establish the unified disaster risk reduction (DRR) system, improve disaster preparedness and response capabilities at national and local levels, and to increase response efficiency to the possible threats.

The National DRR Strategy is one of the important components of the national security review process. The document defines activities for reduction of natural and man-made disasters, risks and challenges faced by the country and defines the main DRR policy directions.

The National DRR Strategy was developed by inter-agency working groups, within the coordination of the Office of the State Security and Crisis Management Council of Georgia. Significant contributions have been made by International organizations and NGOs in development of the Strategy.

Based on the National DRR Strategy an Action Plan was developed, which defines concrete activities, responsible and supporting institutions/agencies (if needed), as well as implementation timeframes and sources of financing (the state budget and/or support from donor organizations/grants).
