Publication date: 2016
Description:

With EU funding and UNDP support, the Clima East Pilot Project in Armenia has been working to restore the degraded mountainous pastures and forests of Armenia. Acknowledging the high rates of rural poverty and poor economic conditions, the project is also building capacity and bolstering economic benefits for local communities through sustainably managing the land.Recognising that the Republic of Armenia strives to achieve ecosystem-neutral GHG emissions in 2050, the project is also working to demonstrate climate change mitigation by identifying and increasing ecosystem capacity for carbon sequestration and setting up the ability to conduct carbon monitoring and assessments.This document summarises the e-publication.
