Georgia: E&S Scoping Study in Batumi

August 2019

KfW Development Bank is financing the further development of the water infrastructure in the city of Batumi (Georgia). The project under development is the Communal Infrastructure Development of Batumi New Areas. The project is interlinked with the Batumi Municipal Infrastructure Rehabilitation, which is being assisted by KfW since 2007. MACS has had an active role in the rehabilitation process since the beginning and is currently assisting the Municipality of Batumi in strengthening Environmental and Social capacity by conducting a scoping study to preliminarily identify and assess the environmental and social impacts, risks and challenges associated with the Project in line with the new KfW Sustainability Guidelines.
