Armenia: Lake Biodiversity Conservation and Wetlands Management
LakeNet and the NGO Professional Entrepreneurial Orientation Union of Armenia signed a technical cooperation agreement in September 2003. Joint activities will be carried out with funding from USAID, including an international seminar on wetlands management and biodiversity conservation to be held on Lake Sevan, the largest lake in Armenia. The main objective of the workshop is to share experience in wetland management and biodiversity conservation with an emphasis on regional partnerships and cooperation in the European Newly Independent States. The LakeNet Secretariat will also be providing technical assistance in the area of information technology and GIS mapping to support lake management and biodiversity conservation efforts on Lake Sevan.
