Transparency in Armenian Environmental
project aims at indentifying challenges with and thereby enhancing the
implementation of multilateral environmental treaties in the Republic of
Through the project we put special emphasis on the UNECE
Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making
and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters, the so-called Aarhus
The project seeks to develop Armenia's capacities to fulfil
its obligations by facilitating transfer of competence, experience as well as
building of capacity on environmental governance among the national, regional
and municipal governance sector and NGOs in Armenia.
The project further
looks at how the obligations related to the Aarhus convention can be
strengthened through legislative development.
The FNI team co-operate
closely with Armenian authorities, international organisations, as well as
academic institutions and NGOs in Armenia.
The project is a continuation
of the project Environmental
Management and Civil Society in Armenia, supported by the Norwegian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2005-2008.
