Georgia is committed to various international agreements on climate change, notably the Paris Agreement and the Association Agreement with the European Union. Recently, in 2021, Georgia announced a new Nationally Determined Contribution, pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35% compared to 1990 levels. The forthcoming Climate Change Law of Georgia marks a significant stride in coordinating and consolidating the nation's efforts to tackle climate change.

In partnership with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD), the ISET Policy Institute is undertaking both the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) and Gender Impact Assessment (GIA) of the Climate Change Law. The RIA involves rigorous problem identification, policy analysis, Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA), and the formulation of a Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. Simultaneously, the GIA evaluates gender relevance, resource allocation, alignment with norms, and individual rights protection to ensure equitable gender outcomes.
