Green Cities Action Plan, Tbilisi

Major environmental concerns for cities range from the quality of air and traffic congestion to pressure on limited green space, land and water resources. Urban activities, and how they are organized deeply affect the environment, and the overall quality of life of urban populations. For the sustainable development of green cities, it is critical to recognize the relationship between environmental aspects and economic and social issues. As a part of the Green Cities Initiative, the Bank together with the OECD and ICLEI prepared a methodology for the development of Green City Action Plan (GCAP). The Methodology is designed to guide a City through 4 main steps of the development and implementation of a GCAP – from establishing a Green City Baseline, developing a vision, preparing the GCAP, implementing the actions and reviewing progress.
