The IUCN Programme Office for the Southern Caucasus, on behalf of the Agency of Protected Areas of the Ministry of Environment Protection and Natural Resources of Georgia, kindly invites all interested stakeholders to submit comments on the draft National Protected Areas System Development Strategy and Action Plan.

Comments and suggestions should be submitted to the Agency of Protected Areas by August 1, 2009 to Ms. Tea Barbakadze at the following address: 6 Gulua Str. 5th floor, Tbilisi, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
