A clean and healthy environment is important not only to protect natural resources for future generations, but also for the health, agricultural livelihoods, and employment opportunities of Georgians today. USAID’s programs support environmental education and the sound management and protection of Georgia’s natural endowments to ensure the longevity and sustainable use of its forests, lands, and water systems mitigating impact on our global climate.
The Waste Management Technologies in Regions activity will improve policy formulation and strategic planning related to waste management at national and local levels in Georgia; enhance the capacity of targeted municipalities to establish and sustainably manage waste facilities and services; and support the development of Georgia’s recycling sector. It will develop remediation plans for old and illegal landfills, which will improve management on thousands of hectares of biologically rich areas. The activity will help reduce environmental pollution, improve sanitation and human health, and increase the quality and quantity of recycled products.
