Caucasus Region for Tech & Environment
National Environmental organisations, research centers, authorities and international organizations are at the center of the fight against climate change. However research, industry and policies are not always designed to work in a coordinated manner. Every year floods, landslides, and poorly planned management of territories cause enormous damages to ecosystems, economies and losses of lives. Combining innovative technology with evidence-based policy-making and organizational change are essential to connect science to governments for sustainable development to better protect people and societies. In the Caucasus region, we advanced institutions capabilities and strengthened their international cooperation with the EU through an integrated support including knowledge sharing, international funding opportunities, technical assistance, remote sensing and GIS, institutional capacity building, social engagement and policy-making.
