14 In the Air, Water and Soil Analyses Laboratory is introduced quality management system in accordance with the ISO The Laboratory is in the process of accreditation. Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 14

15 RIVERS/LAKES SELECTED FOR PILOT DATA SHARING  River Kura Basin – 7 points Borjomi, Gori Tbilisi – Zahesi, Tbilisi -Vakhushti Bridge, Tbilisi - Metekhi Bridge, Gachiani, Rustavi  River Rioni Basin – 6 points Qutaisi – Upper, Qutaisi, Photi – north, Photi – south, Chaladidi, Oni  Chorokhi-Adjaristskali Basin – 2 points Qeda, Batumi  Lake Paliastomi Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 15

16  Kura starting in northeastern Turkey, it flows through Turkey to Georgia, then to Azerbaijan, where it receives the Aras River as a right tributary, and enters the Caspian Sea. The total length of the river is 1,515 kilometers.  About 174 kilometers of the river is in Turkey, 435 kilometers in Georgia, and 906 kilometers in Azerbaijan. About 5,500 square kilometers of the catchment is in Turkey, 29,743 square kilometers in Armenia 46,237 square kilometers in Georgia, 56,290 square kilometers in Azerbaijan, and about 63,500 square kilometers are in Iran. Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 16

17  The river Rioni is the main river of western Georgia. It originates in the Caucasus Mountains and flows west to the Black Sea, entering it north of the city of Poti.  The Rioni is the longest river wholly within the borders of Georgia. Length of the river is 327 km and the drainage area around 13,400 km². It starts on the southern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains at 2,960 meters above the sea level. Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 17

18 ENPI-EPIRB project “Environmental Protection of International River Basins” works on preparation of River Basin Management Plan. The Chorokhi-Adjaristskali pilot basin is located in the Adjarian Autonomous Republic and covers significant part of its territory. Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 18

21 Generally the structure of the national database is comparable with WISE SoE. For each monitoring station it provides the following information: name of station, national code, distance from source and distance from populated area, sampling date, sampling depth, determinand names, units, single measurements, Min, Max and Mean. But there is no any other required data as defined in “data dictionaries” (e.g. pressures, catchment area, information on analytical methods etc.). Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 21

22 CHALLENGESREQUIRED ACTIONS Water quality monitoring points and measured parameters are not sufficient Increasing number of stations and number of monitored parameters. Monitoring of dissolved organic carbon and some of preferred SoE hazardous substances National data structure is different and doesn’t provide all required information The national data structure needs further changes to harmonize with WISE Absence of web-based environmental data management and reporting systems Establish of web-based environmental data management and reporting systems Insufficient quality control systemDevelopment of Quality Management System Lack of relevant trained staffTraining and capacity-building Regional Workshop, 13 May 2014, Geneva 22
