The Georgian Government will create the Racha National Park green area in the west of the country, with new jobs, preservation of biodiversity and sustainable management of natural resources among the goals of the project.

To be established on a 50,894-hectare land, the Park will be situated in the Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti regions, and will involve the creation of an administrative centre in the locality.

Protection and sustainable administering of landscapes and ecosystems in the area are also a part of the initiative.

The decision on the establishment of the Park was announced during Monday’s Government meeting, and follows a bill on the subject first initiated in 2020 with the aim of creating the protected area.
