Proposal for Gender-Equitable, Climate Proof and Sustainable Development in Georgia
A National Appropriate Mitigation Activity (NAMA) for the energy sector in Georgia

Our gender sensitive NAMA foresees the installation of 10.000 energy efficient stoves and 10.000 solar hot water collectors in 5 rural areas of Georgia in the first 5 year phase, with a potential to install up to 60.000 items each.

Local communities in rural areas of Georgia suffer severe energy poverty and struggle with providing heat and warm water for households’ needs.amilies spend around 25 -35% of their income on energy. The burden of collecting firewood and heating the water largely falls on the shoulders of women, who care for the basic needs of the households and spend most of their time on meeting energy needs. Moreover, indoor pollution by the stoves has an adverse effect on their health.
