Abstract
Geography is facing new challenges in Georgia. On the one hand, it is related to evaluation of current condition of the country and its geo-ecological issues, and on the other hand, the requirements of practice and the prospects of socio-economic development. The requirements of practice imply several urgent issues such as new orientation of the land use and the optimal use of the region's natural-resource potential, demographic stability and development of mountainous areas. The prospects of the country’s development include the urgent issues such as global environmental problems and prediction of geo-system conditions, development of military geography and planning of environmentally strained areas. In order to present and solve these problems effectively, Georgian School of Geography should play a key role, which will become a prerequisite for its further development.
