Disaster Risk reduction capacity assessment report -Georgia

In Georgia, natural hazards (floods, flash floods, landslides, mudflows, snow avalanches, earthquakes, hail, heavy rains, storm winds, and droughts), coupled with significant levels of exposure and vulnerability, have a substantial negative impact on the national economy. The government felt the need of DRR to overcome the   capacity gaps in terms of prevention and risk reduction.  In this context, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection of Georgia took the support of the UN Country Team for conducting a capacity assessment of the national DRR system in Georgia

This report provides an in-depth analysis of capacity strengths and gaps related to disaster risk reduction in Georgia. It is based on a tested methodology developed by the Capacity for Disaster Reduction Initiative (CADRI). The findings of the assessment are structured according to the five Priorities for Action identified in the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA):  national and local ownership for DRR; risk identification,  assessment,  monitoring and early warning; knowledge,  innovation and induction for a culture of resilience;  reducing underlying risk factors;  and disaster preparedness for effective response

The present report provides a set of capacity development recommendations to address gaps and challenges identified for each of the five HFA Priority Actions. The level of the proposed actions took
into consideration the country’s real capacity to implement them within three to five years.
