Tbilisi, Georgia – In response to the June 13-14 flooding that devastated Tbilisi, caused tragic loss of life  and destroyed its zoo, the U.S. government—through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—is set to provide various forms of flood recovery assistance requested by the government of Georgia.

After close coordination with the Ministry of Finance and Tbilisi Mayor’s office, USAID will send two U.S. Forest Service natural resource teams to Georgia in the next several weeks.  The first team, which arrives next week and includes a geotechnical engineer, watershed specialist, and hydrologist, will conduct an assessment of the flood disaster zone and recommend short-term mitigation steps the government of Georgia can take to minimize future risks.  The second team, which will arrive in two to three weeks and includes zoo specialists, will develop recommendations for safely relocating and modernizing Tbilisi's zoo.

The US government will continue to coordinate with the government of Georgia to identify specific needs related to flood recovery.
