The present report is the Initial Environmental Examination of the coastal protection works foreseen for Batumi. Purpose of the present report is the presentation of the Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) as an important tool for incorporating environmental concerns at the project level.

Infrastructures under category B should not have significant irreversible or permanent negative environmental impacts during or after construction and require preparation of an Initial Environmental Examination (IEE).
