On this edition of the podcast we are joined by Mariam Devidze from the Green Alternative to talk about climate finance in Georgia. We discuss projects by the Adaptation Fund in particular and we’ll hear about one carried out between 2012 and 2017 to prevent flash floods in the country’s second largest river basin, located on the river Rioni - the main river in Western Georgia.
The project equipped locals with a whole set of tools against flooding, including a new flooding warning system and thorough mapping of vulnerable areas. It also attempted to fortify coastal areas. But they were also many things that went wrong, which Mariam elaborates on during our interview.
