ICCAMGR Hosted its National Conference to Discuss Environmental Protection 
and Climate Change




On April 1, 2016, at the Holiday Inn Hotel, the USAID funded program the 
Institutionalization of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Georgian 
Regions (ICCAMGR) hosted the National Conference on “Climate Change at the 
Local Level: Policy and Action”.  The National Conference gathered 
representatives from the national and municipal governments. In addition, 
the First Deputy Minister of the Environment and Natural Resources 
Protection, Mr. Teimuraz Murghulia and First Deputy Minister of Regional 
Development and Infrastructure, Mr. Tengiz Shergelashvili and 
Representatives of USAID gave speeches.



The main purpose of the Conference was to review and officially approve the 
Road Map on Climate Change Adaptation, a sophisticated tool for supporting 
national and municipal policy development.  This report was created with 
ICCAMGR’s framework.  In addition, participants gained from the 
international experience of guests from Armenia, France and Austria about 
practical mechanisms for integrating local authorities into national 
decision-making processes.



The ICCAMGR program promotes integration of environmental and climate change 
considerations into the agenda of local authorities in Georgia.  The program 
started institutionalizing climate change adaptation practices through 
establishment of special commissions on climate change and sustainable 
development within local municipal governments. To-date, ICCAMGR has 
established 65 municipal-based commissions to serve as critical 
communications links between the local and national authorities. All 
commission members have received intensive trainings in relevant fields and 
gained knowledge and skills to identify and effectively adapt to climate 
change issues in their municipalities. These commissions, or working groups, 
work to ensure the effective implementation of a broad range of statutory 
functions of local authorities related to natural resources management, land 
use and sustainable development.
