Mission and objectives



This UNV assignment is part of UNDP Georgia’s flagship 7-year program on Reducing the Risk of Climate-Driven Disasters, which includes three inter-related projects: GCF-funded Scaling-up Multi-Hazard Early Warning System and the Use of Climate Information in Georgia SDC-funded Strengthening Climate Adaptation Capacities in Georgia SIDA-funded Improved Resilience of Communities to Climate Risk The Program is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture (MEPA) and other relevant ministries. An overall objective of the Program is to reduce exposure of Georgia’s communities, livelihoods and infrastructure to climate-induced natural hazards through a well-functioning nation-wide multi-hazard early warning system and risk-informed local action. The overall Program aims to provide critical climate risk information that would enable the Government of Georgia to implement a number of nation-wide transformative policies and actions for reducing exposure and vulnerability of the population to climate-induced hazards. This flagship Program will thus catalyse a paradigm shift in the national climate risk management, climate-proofed disaster risk reduction and early warning approaches. The Program innovation and transformative change will also include (a) participatory “Last Mile” communication solutions tailored to the needs of local communities, including Community-based Early Warning Systems (CBEWSs); (b) increasing implementation capacities for carrying out cost-effective risk reduction and community resilience measures through such innovative approaches as watershed/floodplain restoration, agroforestry, etc., and combination of structural and non-structural protection measures aimed at reducing exposure and increasing effectiveness of the early warning; (c) combining best available science and local knowledge for vulnerability assessment, hazard and risk mapping,
