    Climate projects in Georgia and their pitfalls: an interview with Mariam Devidze

    Climate projects in Georgia and their pitfalls: an interview with Mariam Devidze

    On this edition of the podcast we are joined by Mariam Devidze from the Green Alternative to talk about climate finance in Georgia. We discuss projects by the Adaptation Fund in particular and we’ll hear about one carried out between 2012 and 2017 to prevent flash floods in the country’s second largest river basin, located on the river Rioni - the main river in Western Georgia. 
    The project equipped locals with a whole set of tools against flooding, including a new flooding warning system and thorough mapping of vulnerable areas. It also attempted to fortify coastal areas. But they were also many things that went wrong, which Mariam elaborates on during our interview.

    COP26: Protest Day featuring an interview with Arshak Makychian

    COP26: Protest Day featuring an interview with Arshak Makychian

    Today we’ve been in the heart of the city, meeting activists who are taking part in protests across Glasgow. We met up with 25 year old student violinist, Arshak Makychian from Fridays for Future Russia. It’s an organisation which urges governments to listen to scientists and meet the commitments they made in the Paris agreement. Arshak has been described as the most lonely protestor after he staged a solo school strike for the climate every Friday in Pushkin Square for more than 110 weeks.  
    We also met another protestor, Evgeny Simonov from the organisation Rivers Without Boundaries. Under Russian law, he’s classed as a Foreign agent. We asked him to tell us why he’s here in Glasgow and why he’s protesting against the development of hydro power dams in the country.
