In September, the European Union Water Initiative Plus for Eastern Partnership Countries (EUWI+) conducted the first round of coastal and transitional water monitoring in Georgia.

The survey took place between 8 and 13 September to establish the ecological status of seven coastal water bodies from the Black Sea coastal village of Sarpi to the town of Kobuleti in Adjara, and one transitional water body in the Chorokhi estuary.

A video showcasing the work has been shared on the EUWI+ Facebook page.
