Green Agenda: Armenia’s Roadmap for a Sustainable Tomorrow

The Green Agenda project for which ADWISE Consulting is the National Implementing Partner in Armenia, is now officially launched in Yerevan, Armenia.

Embarking on a transformative journey, Armenia will align with the European Green Deal and the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Extended Partnership Agreement (CEPA). This initiative aims to harmonize national policies with leading European standards, propelling Armenia towards a more sustainable and prosperous future.

The project launch and its first Steering Committee meeting, chaired by the Ministry of Environment brought together a diverse group of key stakeholders, Government officials and members of the international community.

The Deputy Minister of Environment, Aram Meymaryan, addressing the attendees, highlighted the project’s significance: “Armenia is on the brink of transformation. Our environmental awareness is expanding, yet we remain confronted by significant challenges, including pollution, waste management, and deforestation. These are the pressing issues we are vigorously striving to address. However, we realize that our approach needs to embrace sustainability. The Green Agenda is a decisive roadmap designed to cultivate a healthier environment for our citizens, administer our natural resources more effectively, and ultimately, lead us towards a more ecologically-friendly Armenia.”

Attendees of the project launch received a message from Patrik Svensson, the Sweden’s Ambassador to Armenia: “The Green Agenda, a key priority for Sweden, aligns with an invaluable opportunity for Armenia, where a greener economy could simultaneously enhance citizens’ quality of life, catalyse sustainable growth, and generate new employment opportunities. Amid these challenging times, steering Armenia’s economy towards greener practices presents not just a prudent policy decision, but also a strategic vision ensuring equitable and inclusive progression towards a sustainable, zero-emission, and environmentally responsible economy.”

In a message addressed to event attendees, Virginijus Sinkevičius, the Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, at the European Commission, emphasized: “The climate change resistant future is a necessity for which we are laying the background nowadays. By adopting sustainable policies and practices, Armenia aligns its policies with European standards, aiming to enhance the quality of life for its citizens, open up new business opportunities and strengthen trade and economic relations with EU member states.”
