Armenia is one of the biodiversity hot spots in the world having a remarkable amount of endemism. There are 3 state reserves, 4 national parks, and 259 state sanctuaries and natural monuments.
The Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic, together with Finland's SYKE Environmental Institute, started to implement the project "Strengthened protection and sustainable use of biodiversity in Armenia in line with the European standards" at the beginning of 2021. The project supports implementation of the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement between Armenia and the EU (CEPA) in the field of biodiversity conservation. It is funded through Europe Aid - Twinning tool.
The goal of the proejct is to strengthen the capacity of the Armenian Ministry of Environment to comply with the commitments taken under CEPA and its Roadmap in the field of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
