UNESCO grants Georgia’s two territories a biosphere reserve status

For the first time in the history of Georgia and the Caucasus, UNESCO granted Georgia’s two territories the status of a biosphere reserve, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said.

“The biosphere reserve, through the prudent use of natural and human resources, improves the ecological, economic and social situation of the region, facilitates business, especially in terms of organic production, increases tourism potential and, thus, is crucial for the sustainable development of diverse local economies.

International recognition of Dedoplistskaro Biosphere Reserve and Sam Alazani Biosphere Reserve will have a positive impact on the social and economic situation of the local population and will create new development opportunities for the region and the country as a whole.

We have been working for this historic result since 2015. I thank every government agency involved in the project for their efforts, as well as our international friends and partners,” PM said.
