Generate a relevant climate change adaptation and mitigation impact in the Borjomi-Bakuriani pilot region as basis for upscaling and policy development at national level, and to improve the livelihood of people by supporting the sustainable development of forest ecosystems in Georgia
Activities: (2014 - 2016)
- The project will systematically analyse the baseline CO2 and non-CO2 emissions and removals by sink associated to forest land use and land use change, forest vegetation types, carbon pools and activities in the Borjomi-Bakuriani pilot region.
- Climate change mitigation activities will be derived from proposed good practice guidelines on sustainable management of forests.
- The restoration of 45.000 hectares of forest will substantially enhance carbon sequestration and storage.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available|
