Impacts of climate change on Georgia’s coastal zone: Vulnerability assessment and adaptation options

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This study provides information to be used to raise the ambition of Georgia's NDCs and to consider adaptation targets for the Black Sea coast of Georgia. The study also highlights how supporting a Blue Economy could accelerate the implementation of adaptation measures required to reduce climate risks and contribute towards the region's socioeconomic development and environmental conservation.

The paper finds that there is a strong opportunity for Georgia to integrate the Black Sea into the country's strategies for climate adaptation and mitigation. A Blue Economy approach maximises the socio-economic and environmental benefits generated by the coastal, marine, and maritime sectors, in an integrated and sustainable way, in order to better address the growing threats confronting the sea, particularly those posed by climate change. It also provides employment generation opportunities for coastal communities, reduce pressure on coastal and marine ecosystems, and enhance their productivity in a sustainable manner. Any adaptation to climate change action would also contribute to a post-COVID-19 economic recovery of coastal zone communities and businesses.
