Climate change has a strong impact on mountainous landscapes such as the resort area of Bakhmaro. Therefore, it is necessary to assess the impact of climate change before a resort development plan is created, or it should be part of a development plan.
According to the Government of Georgia, Bakhmaro will be turned into a ski resort. However, no assessment has been made of the impact of climate change on the Bakhmaro Resort area; Especially on such important components as: precipitation distribution and snow cover. This assessment will be an essential factor in the Climate Adaptation Plan, enabling relevant government agencies to pre-determine climate change adaptation measures.
CENN, with the support of the British Embassy, has launched the project “Climate Change Impact on Bakhmaro Resort”, which aims to study the climate of Bakhmaro Resort. The project assesses the existing climate parameters, determines the impact of climate change and prepares recommendations on stable adaptation to climate change in order to facilitate informed decision making.
