Outlook on Climate Change Adaptation in the South Caucasus Mountains

Changes in climate patterns are already evident in the South Caucasus countries – Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. Annual temperatures are increasing accompanied by severe heat waves and droughts. More extreme weather events, such as heavy rains and unusual hail storms, and changes in precipitation patterns are also linked to climate change. Human casualties, damage to infrastructure and economic losses are increasing due to intensifying natural disasters such as floods, landslides and mudslides.
