ESIA and industrial emissions legislation, Georgia

October 2017 - Georgia

Since its association agreement with the EU (2014), Georgia is in the process of transposing EU Directives into its national legislation. Over the past years Georgia has therefore worked on preparing ESIA legislation, with support from the NCEA. Currently on the agenda is the Industrial Emissions Directive, which will be transposed into Georgian legislation with help from various parties in an EU twinning project. As part of this project, the NCEA has advised on how to align the new legislation with the ESIA legislation. This helps Georgia to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for investors.
