Natural disasters

Due to difficult terrain, geological and climatic conditions, natural disasters in Georgia are large-scale, repetitive - frequent and the risk of danger - high. In recent years, there has been an increase in their number, which is due to both climate change and human impact. As natural disasters pose a high threat to the country's population, infrastructure and economy, issues of their management are of particular concern. An early warning and monitoring system is being set up to minimize economic losses and human casualties. Geological (landslides, mudslides, rockfalls, rock falls, etc.) and hydrometeorological events (floods, snow avalanches, hail, drought, strong winds, etc.) are monitored in Georgia and relevant survays are carried out by the National Environment Agency. The Agency annually conducts regular (spring, autumn) geological monitoring in the settlements of the territory of Georgia; In case of extreme activation of the geological natural disaster, the risk and consequences of the natural disaster are assessed in the critical areas, on the basis of which an annual information geological bulletin is published, which presents current geological data, process data and analysis, as well as forecast of expected hazards. Geological findings are also prepared, which provide recommendations for protective measures to be taken. The agency prepares short, medium and long-term weather forecasts and warnings about expected natural disasters.

Georgia is actively involved in international processes aimed at reducing disaster risks and mitigating the consequences.
