Launch of TEEB for Georgia Scoping Study

01.10.13 - 01.10.13

The TEEB scoping study for Georgia: Main findings and way forward will be launched 1 Ocotober 2013 in Tbliisi, Georgia.

The TEEB Scoping Study for Georgia identifies policy priorities, which will form the basis of a full TEEB country study for Georgia. The country study would make recommendations for meeting policy priorities through this six step approach:

  • Refine the objectives of the TEEB country study by specifying and agreeing on the key policy issues with stakeholders
  • Further refine and identify which ecosystem services are most relevant within the context of these policy issues
  • Define information needs and select appropriate methods for a Georgia context
  • Undertake the actual assessment of ecosystem services, possibly, but not necessarily, by monetary valuation
  • Look at possible policy responses and the policy instruments at hand, some of which have been preliminarily reviewed in the scoping study and assess their distributional impacts
  • Review, revise and report resultsorganized by TEEB/ROE and will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia on October 1st 2013

The scoping study recommends five priority areas to be examined under a full TEEB study, namely: energy, forestry, agriculture, mining & tourism.
