Context

The on-road transport sector is one of the major sources of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in Georgia. Currently, Georgia does not have vehicle emission standards in place. However, the country seeks to establish stronger regulations in accordance with EU directives in order to protect human health and the environment from the negative impact of emissions.
