135 schools participated in the paper waste collection contest supported by USAID’s Waste Management Technologies in the Regions Project.  53 tons of paper waste was collected and given to local recycling companies.

This green initiative saved 370 trees and 160 cubic meters of landfill space in the country. It also saved energy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions that harm the environment. This is a great initiative and a good start that definitely should be further enhanced by encouraging others to do the same.

United States (U.S.) policy in Georgia exemplifies how our approach to former communist states can succeed. Thanks in large part to U.S. political support and assistance, a country close to being a failed state eight years ago now is a strong partner in combating terrorism and nuclear proliferation, contributes substantially to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) missions, has constructive relations with most of its neighbors, and is one of the most democratic countries in the former Soviet Union. At the same time, Georgia presents challenges to which the U.S. is committed to respond. Georgia requires further democratic development, reforms in other areas need to be sustained, and the Russian occupation of the separatist regions of both Abkhazia and South Ossetia undermines their reintegration into Georgia and puts a brake on the overall reform process, a U.S. priority.
