The GEF will support priority activities towards these objectives. The GEF funded SAP implementation Project has the objective “to integrate water resources management in the Kura river basin to address water-energy-food-ecosystem security nexus through the implementation of agreed actions in the SAP”.
Duties and Responsibilities
The widespread decline in river ecosystems across the Kura river basin has resulted from river engineering activities and the alteration of the river and its floodplain. These activities have been in response to changing landscape activities as a result of industrialization, urbanization and intensification of agriculture. By restoring natural conditions, river restoration improves the resilience of the river systems and provides the framework for the river sustainable multifunctional use. River restoration is an integral part of sustainable water management and is in direct support of the aims of the EU Water Framework Directive, and national and regional water management policies.
The consultant, in collaboration and close coordination with the Project Coordination Unit and the National Focal Points, shall carry out the following activities:
